Famous quotes containing the words works and/or written:

    In the works of man, everything is as poor as its author; vision is confined, means are limited, scope is restricted, movements are labored, and results are humdrum.
    Joseph De Maistre (1753–1821)

    I knew a pure heart who refused tot be mistrustful.... He had written at his doorstep: “From wherever you are, enter and be welcome”. Who do you think responded to this lovely invitation? The militia, who made themselves at home and gutted him.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)
