Famous quotes containing the word effects:

    The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly, is to fill the world with fools.
    Herbert Spencer (1820–1903)

    The machines that are first invented to perform any particular movement are always the most complex, and succeeding artists generally discover that, with fewer wheels, with fewer principles of motion, than had originally been employed, the same effects may be more easily produced. The first systems, in the same manner, are always the most complex.
    Adam Smith (1723–1790)

    to become a pimp
    Or deal in fake jewelry or ruin a fine tenor voice
    For effects that bring down the house could happen to all
    But the best and the worst of us . . .
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
