Famous quotes containing the words statistics and/or vital:

    We ask for no statistics of the killed,
    For nothing political impinges on
    This single casualty, or all those gone,
    Missing or healing, sinking or dispersed,
    Hundreds of thousands counted, millions lost.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Like all revolutions, the surrealist revolution was a reversion, a restitution, an expression of vital and indispensable spiritual needs.
    Eugène Ionesco (b. 1912)
