Who is r.c. sherriff?

Famous quotes containing the word sherriff:

    Power, I said. Power to walk into the gold vaults of the nations, into the secrets of kings, into the holy of holies. Power to make multitudes run squealing in terror at the touch of my little invisible finger. Even the moon’s frightened of me. Frightened to death. The whole world’s frightened to death.
    —R.C. Sherriff (1896–1975)
