Famous quotes containing the words stock and/or breeding:

    All that stock of arguments [the skeptics] produce to depreciate our faculties, and make mankind appear ignorant and low, are drawn principally from this head, to wit, that we are under an invincible blindness as to the true and real nature of things.
    George Berkeley (1685–1753)

    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
