Famous quotes containing the word life:
“What I call middle-class society is any society that becomes rigidified in predetermined forms, forbidding all evolution, all gains, all progress, all discovery. I call middle-class a closed society in which life has no taste, in which the air is tainted, in which ideas and men are corrupt. And I think that a man who takes a stand against this death is in a sense a revolutionary.”
—Frantz Fanon (19251961)
“The happiest part of a mans life is what he passes lying awake in bed in the morning.”
—Samuel Johnson (17091784)
“Most of ones life is one prolonged effort to prevent oneself thinking.”
—Aldous Huxley (18941963)
