Famous quotes containing the word violent:

    These violent delights have violent ends,
    And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
    Which as they kiss consume.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)

    They who are continually shocked by slavery have some right to be shocked by the violent death of the slaveholder, but no others. Such will be more shocked by his life than by his death.
