Famous quotes containing the words foot and/or regiment:
“We stood talking for some time together of Bishop Berkeleys ingenious sophistry to prove the non-existence of matter, and that every thing in the universe is merely ideal. I observed, that though we are satisfied his doctrine is not true, it is impossible to refute it. I shall never forget the alacrity with which Johnson answered, striking his foot with mighty force against a large stone, till he rebounded from it, I refute it thus.”
—Samuel Johnson (17091784)
“Christians would show sense if they dispatched these argumentative Scotists and pigheaded Ockhamists and undefeated Albertists along with the whole regiment of Sophists to fight the Turks and Saracens instead of sending those armies of dull-witted soldiers with whom theyve long been carrying on war with no result.”
—Desiderius Erasmus (c. 14661536)
