Famous quotes containing the words series and/or ashes:

    Autobiography is only to be trusted when it reveals something disgraceful. A man who gives a good account of himself is probably lying, since any life when viewed from the inside is simply a series of defeats.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    Whom I most hated living, thou hast made me
    With thy religious truth and modesty,
    Now in his ashes honor.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
