Famous quotes containing the words list and/or current:

    All is possible,
    Who so list believe;
    Trust therefore first, and after preve,
    As men wed ladies by license and leave,
    All is possible.
    Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503?–1542)

    Our current obsession with creativity is the result of our continued striving for immortality in an era when most people no longer believe in an after-life.
    Arianna Stassinopoulos (b. 1950)
