Famous quotes containing the word resort:

    The last resort of kings, the cannonball. The last resort of the people, the paving stone.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    If the worker and his boss enjoy the same television program and visit the same resort places, if the typist is as attractively made up as the daughter of her employer, if the Negro owns a Cadillac, if they all read the same newspaper, then this assimilation indicates not the disappearance of classes, but the extent to which the needs and satisfactions that serve the preservation of the Establishment are shared by the underlying population.
    Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979)

    Dylan is to me the perfect symbol of the anti-artist in our society. He is against everything—the last resort of someone who doesn’t really want to change the world.... Dylan’s songs accept the world as it is.
    Ewan MacColl (1915–1989)
