Famous quotes containing the words pure and/or simon:

    Honesty, respectability, the “what-will-people-say”, the wisdom of nations, nothing means anything any more. Everything disappears before fear. Fear, eh, Caesonia, that noble sentiment, unallayed, pure and disinterested, one of those rare ones that get their nobility from the belly.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    Improvisation is too good to leave to chance.
    —Paul Simon (b. 1941)
