Famous quotes containing the words put and/or shot:

    Most revolutionaries are potential Tories, because they imagine that everything can be put right by altering the shape of society; once that change is effected, as it sometimes is, they see no need for any other.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    When they shot him down in the highway,
    Down like a dog in the highway,
    And he lay in his blood on the highway, with the bunch of lace at
    his throat.
    Alfred Noyes (1880–1958)
