Famous quotes containing the word designed:

    They are a very decent generous lot of people out here and they don’t expect you to listen.... It’s the secret of social ease in this country. They talk entirely for their own pleasure. Nothing they say is designed to be heard.
    Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966)

    It is impossible that anything so natural, so necessary, and so universal as death should ever have been designed by Providence as an evil to mankind.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    As I walked on the glacis I heard the sound of a bagpipe from the soldiers’ dwellings in the rock, and was further soothed and affected by the sight of a soldier’s cat walking up a cleated plank in a high loophole designed for mus-catry, as serene as Wisdom herself, and with a gracefully waving motion of her tail, as if her ways were ways of pleasantness and all her paths were peace.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
