Famous quotes containing the words phases and/or life:

    That man is to be pitied who cannot enjoy social intercourse without eating and drinking. The lowest orders, it is true, cannot imagine a cheerful assembly without the attractions of the table, and this reflection alone should induce all who aim at intellectual culture to endeavor to avoid placing the choicest phases of social life on such a basis.
    Mrs. H. O. Ward (1824–1899)

    The destructive character lives from the feeling, not that life is worth living, but that suicide is not worth the trouble.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)
