Famous quotes containing the words chapter and/or general:

    When one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)

    It was the words “descended into Hades”
    That seemed too pagan to our liberal youth.
    You know they suffered from a general onslaught.
    And well, if they weren’t true why keep right on
    Saying them like the heathen? We could drop them.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
