Famous quotes containing the words terms, unfair and/or contract:

    Again we have here two distinctions that are no distinctions, but made to seem so by terms invented by I know not whom to cover ignorance, and blind the understanding of the reader: for it cannot be conceived that there is any liberty greater, than for a man to do what he will.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)

    I was so sick and faint, so overcome at the brutality of this fiendish sport, that I hardly heard the shouts of “Bravo! bravo!” and the fanfaronade of trumpets.... I do not know which astonished me the most, the strikingly curious, brilliant coup d’oeil, the dexterity of the men, the intrepidity of the animals, the miserable unfair play, or the pleasure of the spectators.
    M. E. W. Sherwood (1826–1903)

    The way in which men cling to old institutions after the life has departed out of them, and out of themselves, reminds me of those monkeys which cling by their tails—aye, whose tails contract about the limbs, even the dead limbs, of the forest, and they hang suspended beyond the hunter’s reach long after they are dead. It is of no use to argue with such men. They have not an apprehensive intellect, but merely, as it were a prehensile tail.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
