Famous quotes containing the words records and/or world:

    Better the rudest work that tells a story or records a fact, than the richest without meaning.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)

    The dupe of friendship, and the fool of love; have I not reason to hate and to despise myself? Indeed I do; and chiefly for not having hated and despised the world enough.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)
