Famous quotes containing the words writers, society, nations and/or united:

    The want of an international Copy-Right Law, by rendering it nearly impossible to obtain anything from the booksellers in the way of remuneration for literary labor, has had the effect of forcing many of our very best writers into the service of the Magazines and Reviews.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    In society one needs a flexible virtue; too much goodness can be blamable.
    Molière [Jean Baptiste Poquelin] (1622–1673)

    “... There, there,
    What you complain of, all the nations share.
    Their effort is a mounting ecstasy
    That when it gets too exquisite to bear
    Will find relief in one burst. You shall see.
    That’s what a certain bomb was sent to be.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Human life in common is only made possible when a majority comes together which is stronger than any separate individual and which remains united against all separate individuals. The power of this community is then set up as “right” in opposition to the power of the individual, which is condemned as “brute force.”
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)
