Famous quotes containing the words general and/or spartan:
“The reputation of generosity is to be purchased pretty cheap; it does not depend so much upon a mans general expense, as it does upon his giving handsomely where it is proper to give at all. A man, for instance, who should give a servant four shillings, would pass for covetous, while he who gave him a crown, would be reckoned generous; so that the difference of those two opposite characters, turns upon one shilling.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
“But theres another knowledge that my heart destroys
As the fox in the old fable destroyed the Spartan boys
Because it proves that things both can and cannot be;
That the swordsmen and the ladies can still keep company;
Can pay the poet for a verse and hear the fiddle sound,
That I am still their servant though all are underground.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
