Famous quotes containing the word sinister:

    Calm fell. From Heaven distilled a clemency;
    There was peace on earth, and silence in the sky;
    Some could, some could not, shake off misery:
    The Sinister Spirit sneered: ‘It had to be!’
    And again the Spirit of Pity whispered, ‘Why?’
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    To shoot a man because one disagrees with his interpretation of Darwin or Hegel is a sinister tribute to the supremacy of ideas in human affairs—but a tribute nevertheless.
    George Steiner (b. 1929)

    Both of us felt more anxiety about the South—about the colored people especially—than about anything else sinister in the result. My hope of a sound currency will somehow be realized; civil service reform will be delayed; but the great injury is in the South. There the Amendments will be nullified, disorder will continue, prosperity to both whites and colored people will be pushed off for years.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
