Famous quotes containing the words the last and/or save:

    I wonder whether mankind could not get along without all these names, which keep increasing every day, and hour, and moment; till at the last the very air will be full of them; and even in a great plain, men will be breathing each other’s breath, owing to the vast multitude of words they use, that consume all the air, just as lamp-burners do gas.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Nosferatu! Vampire! First I will save your soul, then I will destroy you.
    George Romero (b. 1940)
