Famous quotes containing the word piece:
“What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a godthe beauty of the world, the paragon of animals!”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“I have a piece of great and sad news to tell you: I am dead.”
—Jean Cocteau (18891963)
“Rationalists are admirable beings, rationalism is a hideous monster when it claims for itself omnipotence. Attribution of omnipotence to reason is as bad a piece of idolatry as is worship of stock and stone believing it to be God. I plead not for the suppression of reason, but for a due recognition of that in us which sanctifies reason.”
—Mohandas K. Gandhi (18691948)
