Famous quotes containing the words rail, high and/or speed:

    For this is the mark of a wise and upright man, not to rail against the gods in misfortune.
    Aeschylus (525–456 B.C.)

    When you’re right in the market, it’s the best high you can imagine. It’s a high without any alcohol. When you’re wrong, it’s the lowest low you can imagine.
    Michelle Miller (b. c. 1950)

    Among the laws controlling human societies there is one more precise and clearer, it seems to me, than all the others. If men are to remain civilized or to become civilized, the art of association must develop and improve among them at the same speed as equality of conditions spreads.
    Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–1859)
