Famous quotes containing the word case:

    It is almost everywhere the case that soon after it is begotten the greater part of human wisdom is laid to rest in repositories.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    Consider the deference which is everywhere paid to a doctor’s opinion. Nothing more strikingly betrays the credulity of mankind than medicine. Quackery is a thing universal, and universally successful. In this case it becomes literally true that no imposition is too great for the credulity of men.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If a playwright tried to see eye to eye with everybody, he would get the worst case of strabismus since Hannibal lost an eye trying to count his nineteen elephants during a snowstorm while crossing the Alps.
    James Thurber (1894–1961)
