Famous quotes containing the words council and/or spartan:

    I haven’t seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the company’s behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    My hounds are bred out of the Spartan kind,
    So flewed, so sanded; and their heads are hung
    With ears that sweep away the morning dew;
    Crook-kneed, and dewlapped like Thessalian bulls;
    Slow in pursuit, but matched in mouth like bells,
    Each under each.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
