Famous quotes containing the words cups and/or paper:

    What a devil hast thou to do with the time of the day? Unless hours were cups of sack, and minutes capons, and clocks the
    tongues of bawds, and dials the signs of leaping-houses, and the blessed sun himself a fair hot wench in flame-colored
    taffeta, I see no reason why thou shouldst be so superfluous
    to demand the time of the day.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Apart from their other characteristics, the outstanding thing about China’s 600 million people is that they are “poor and blank.” This may seem a bad thing, but in reality it is a good thing. Poverty gives rise to the desire for change, the desire for action and the desire for revolution. On a blank sheet of paper free from any mark, the freshest and most beautiful pictures can be painted.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)
