Famous quotes containing the words champion, official and/or world:

    What a terrible thing has happened to us all! To you there, to us here, to all everywhere. Peace who was becoming bright-eyed, now sits in the shadow of death; her handsome champion has been killed as he walked by her very side. Her gallant boy is dead. What a cruel, foul, and most unnatural murder! We mourn here with you, poor, sad American people.
    Sean O’Casey (1884–1964)

    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    We came into the world like brother and brother;
    And now let’s go hand in hand, not one before another.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
