Famous quotes containing the words commission, pour, des and/or history:

    It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)

    In my skull,
    from which vision took flight,
    will come wine
    will pour song
    of the cool night.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    When I was growing up I used to think that the best thing about coming from Des Moines was that it meant you didn’t come from anywhere else in Iowa. By Iowa standards, Des Moines is a mecca of cosmopolitanism, a dynamic hub of wealth and education, where people wear three-piece suits and dark socks, often simultaneously.
    Bill Bryson (b. 1951)

    The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)
