Famous quotes containing the word current:

    Reputation runs behind the current state of affairs.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    The first opinion that occurs to us when we are suddenly asked about something is usually not our own but only the current one pertaining to our class, position, or parentage; our own opinions seldom swim on the surface.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The English language may hold a more disagreeable combination of words than “The doctor will see you now.” I am willing to concede something to the phrase “Have you anything to say before the current is turned on?”
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
