### Famous quotes containing the word numbers:

“Publishers are notoriously slothful about *numbers*, unless they’re attached to dollar signs—unlike journalists, quarterbacks, and felony criminal defendents who tend to be keenly aware of *numbers* at all times.”

—Hunter S. Thompson (b. 1939)

“The principle of majority rule is the mildest form in which the force of *numbers* can be exercised. It is a pacific substitute for civil war in which the opposing armies are counted and the victory is awarded to the larger before any blood is shed. Except in the sacred tests of democracy and in the incantations of the orators, we hardly take the trouble to pretend that the rule of the majority is not at bottom a rule of force.”

—Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)

“And when all bodies meet

In Lethe to be drowned,

Then only *numbers* sweet

With endless life are crowned.”

—Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
