Famous quotes containing the word bentley:

    He followed in his father’s footsteps, but his gait was somewhat erratic.
    —Nicolas Bentley (1907–1978)

    Every living language, like the perspiring bodies of living creatures, is in perpetual motion and alteration; some words go off, and become obsolete; others are taken in, and by degrees grow into common use; or the same word is inverted to a new sense or notion, which in tract of time makes an observable change in the air and features of a language, as age makes in the lines and mien of a face.
    —Richard Bentley (1662–1742)
