Famous quotes containing the words rail, class and/or british:

    If goodness were only a theory, it were a pity it should be lost to the world. There are a number of things, the idea of which is a clear gain to the mind. Let people, for instance, rail at friendship, genius, freedom, as long as they will—the very names of these despised qualities are better than anything else that could be substituted for them, and embalm even the most envenomed satire against them.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)

    When once a certain class of people has been placed by the temporal and spiritual authorities outside the ranks of those whose life has value, then nothing comes more naturally to men than murder.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    Death is an incident producing clay. Use it, mold it, learn from it.
    John Gilling, British screenwriter. Dr. Knox (Peter Cushing)
