Famous quotes containing the word sinister:

    Are you being sinister or is this some form of practical joke?
    I’m trying to come to the point.
    I refuse to give up my obsession.
    America stop pushing I know what I’m doing.
    America the plum blossoms are falling.
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    To shoot a man because one disagrees with his interpretation of Darwin or Hegel is a sinister tribute to the supremacy of ideas in human affairs—but a tribute nevertheless.
    George Steiner (b. 1929)

    Calm fell. From Heaven distilled a clemency;
    There was peace on earth, and silence in the sky;
    Some could, some could not, shake off misery:
    The Sinister Spirit sneered: ‘It had to be!’
    And again the Spirit of Pity whispered, ‘Why?’
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)
