### Famous quotes containing the word degenerate:

“In this distribution of functions, the scholar is the delegated intellect. In the right state, he is, Man Thinking. In the *degenerate* state, when the victim of society, he tends to become a mere thinker, or, still worse, the parrot of other men’s thinking.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

“He was ... a *degenerate* gambler. That is, a man who gambled simply to gamble and must lose. As a hero who goes to war must die. Show me a gambler and I’ll show you a loser, show me a hero and I’ll show you a corpse.”

—Mario Puzo (b. 1920)

“James Bond in his Sean Connery days ... was the first well-known bachelor on the American scene who was not a drifter or a *degenerate* and did not eat out of cans.”

—Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
