Famous quotes containing the words spelled and/or word:

    Freedom of enterprise was from the beginning not altogether a blessing. As the liberty to work or to starve, it spelled toil, insecurity, and fear for the vast majority of the population. If the individual were no longer compelled to prove himself on the market, as a free economic subject, the disappearance of this freedom would be one of the greatest achievements of civilization.
    Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979)

    The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
