Famous quotes containing the word cast:

    By the time a person has achieved years adequate for choosing a direction, the die is cast and the moment has long since passed which determined the future.
    Zelda Fitzgerald (1900–1948)

    Has he all that the world loves and admires and covets?—he must cast behind him their admiration, and afflict them by faithfulness to his truth, and become a byword and a hissing.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Nothing is so foolish, they say, as for a man to stand for office and woo the crowd to win its vote, buy its support with presents, court the applause of all those fools and feel self-satisfied when they cry their approval, and then in his hour of triumph to be carried round like an effigy for the public to stare at, and end up cast in bronze to stand in the market place.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)
