Famous quotes containing the words mere and/or martin:

    I ask whether the mere eating of human flesh so very far exceeds in barbarity that custom which only a few years since was practised in enlightened England:Ma convicted traitor, perhaps a man found guilty of honesty, patriotism, and suchlike heinous crimes, had his head lopped off with a huge axe, his bowels dragged out and thrown into a fire; while his body, carved into four quarters, was with his head exposed upon pikes, and permitted to rot and fester among the public haunts of men!
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Ijustwantto, like, dance. I just want to like, you know, put on some Shirelles. I just, I want to be black.
