Famous quotes containing the words insurance and/or general:

    Women hock their jewels and their husbands’ insurance policies to acquire an unaccustomed shade in hair or crêpe de chine. Why then is it that when anyone commits anything novel in the arts he should be always greeted by this same peevish howl of pain and surprise? One is led to suspect that the interest people show in these much talked of commodities, painting, music, and writing, cannot be very deep or very genuine when they so wince under an unexpected impact.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    The esteem of good men is the reward of our worth, but the reputation of the world in general is the gift of our fate.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
