Famous quotes containing the words mere and/or orton:
“I would have these good people to recollect, that the laws of this country hold out to foreigners an offer of all that liberty of the press which Americans enjoy, and that, if this liberty be abridged, by whatever means it may be done, the laws and the constitution, and all together, is a mere cheat; a snare to catch the credulous and enthusiastic of every other nation; a downright imposition on the world.”
—William Cobbett (17621835)
“You were born with your legs apart. Theyll send you to the grave in a Y-shaped coffin.”
—Joe Orton (19331967)
