Famous quotes containing the word called:

    No one can understand Paris and its history who does not understand that its fierceness is the balance and justification of its frivolity. It is called a city of pleasure; but it may also very specially be called a city of pain. The crown of roses is also a crown of thorns. Its people are too prone to hurt others, but quite ready also to hurt themselves. They are martyrs for religion, they are martyrs for irreligion; they are even martyrs for immorality.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    What is called resignation is confirmed desperation.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    What is called a road there ... is only an indistinct vista through the wood, which it takes an experienced eye to detect.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
