Famous quotes containing the words society, jewish and/or historical:

    I shall not want Society in Heaven,
    Lucretia Borgia shall be my Bride;
    Her anecdotes will be more amusing
    Than Pipit’s experience could provide.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Jesus was a brilliant Jewish stand-up comedian, a phenomenal improvisor. His parables are great one-liners.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
