Famous quotes containing the words arthur l, prize, day and/or arthur:

    I am not in the habit of taking baritones to supper.
    Eric Taylor, Leroux, and Arthur Lubin. Raoul Daubert (Edgar Barrier)

    In the corrupted currents of this world
    Offence’s gilded hand may shove by justice,
    And oft ‘tis seen the wicked prize itself
    Buys out the law; but ‘tis not so above:
    There is no shuffling.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Profound as race prejudice is against the Negro American, it is not practically as far- reaching as the prejudice against women. For stripping away the sentimentality which makes Mother’s Day and Best American Mother Contests, the truth is that women suffer all the effects of a minority.
    Pearl S. Buck (1892–1973)

    O unbelievers,
    I serve not what you serve
    and you are not serving what I serve,
    nor am I serving what you have served,
    neither are you serving what I serve.
    To you your religion, and to me my religion!
    Qur’An. The Unbelievers, 109:1-5, ed. Arthur J. Arberry (1955)
