Famous quotes containing the word bearer:

    Just as a person who is always asserting that he is too good-natured is the very one from whom to expect, on some occasion, the coldest and most unconcerned cruelty, so when any group sees itself as the bearer of civilization this very belief will betray it into behaving barbarously at the first opportunity.
    Simone Weil (1910–1943)

    The bearer of evil tidings,
    When he was halfway there,
    Remembered that evil tidings
    Were a dangerous thing to bear.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    No man loves the bearer of bad tidings.
    Sophocles (497–406/5 B.C.)
