Famous quotes containing the word tenth:

    The principle of asceticism never was, nor ever can be, consistently pursued by any living creature. Let but one tenth part of the inhabitants of the earth pursue it consistently, and in a day’s time they will have turned it into a Hell.

    There is but one a bad one;
    The tenth is he, the parson’s fee,
    And indeed he is a sad one.
    No love of fame, no sense of shame,
    And a bad heart, let me tell ye:
    Without, all brass; within, all ass,
    And the puppy’s name is Felly.
    Horace Walpole (1717–1797)
