Famous quotes containing the words test and/or skin:

    It is commonly said ... that ridicule is the best test of truth; for that it will not stick where it is not just. I deny it. A truth learned in a certain light, and attacked in certain words, by men of wit and humour, may, and often doth, become ridiculous, at least so far, that the truth is only remembered and repeated for the sake of the ridicule.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    I’ve been opened and undressed.
    I have no arms or legs.
    I’m all one skin like a fish.
    I’m no more a woman
    than Christ was a man.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
