Famous quotes containing the words dog and/or modern:
“There are a sort of men whose visages
Do cream and mantle like a standing pond,
And do a willful stillness entertain,
With purpose to be dressed in an opinion
Of wisdom, gravity, profound conceit,
As who should say, I am Sir Oracle,
And when I ope my lips let no dog bark!”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“All modern revolutions have ended in a reinforcement of the power of the state.”
—Albert Camus (19131960)
