Famous quotes containing the word hutton:

    an age of unscrupulous and shameless book-making, it is a duty to give notice of the rubbish that cumbers the ground. There is no credit, no real power required for this task. It is the work of an intellectual scavenger, and far from being specially honourable.
    —Richard Holt Hutton (1826–1897)
