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

    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)

    Every day one should at least listen to a little song, read a good poem, look at a fine painting, and, if possible, say a few reasonable words.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)
