Famous quotes containing the word tenth:

    Of Ickworth’s boys, their father’s joys,
    There is but one a bad one;
    The tenth is he, the parson’s fee,
    And indeed he is a sad one.
    No love of fame, no sense of shame,
    And a bad heart, let me tell ye:
    Without, all brass; within, all ass,
    And the puppy’s name is Felly.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

    Coming out, all the way out, is offered more and more as the political solution to our oppression. The argument goes that, if people could see just how many of us there are, some in very important places, the negative stereotype would vanish overnight. ...It is far more realistic to suppose that, if the tenth of the population that is gay became visible tomorrow, the panic of the majority of people would inspire repressive legislation of a sort that would shock even the pessimists among us.
    Jane Rule (b. 1931)

    The principle of asceticism never was, nor ever can be, consistently pursued by any living creature. Let but one tenth part of the inhabitants of the earth pursue it consistently, and in a day’s time they will have turned it into a Hell.
    Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832)
