### Famous quotes containing the word numbers:

“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)

“All ye poets of the age,

All ye witlings of the stage,

Learn your jingles to reform,

Crop your *numbers* to conform.

Let your little verses flow

Gently, sweetly, row by row;

Let the verse the subject fit,

Little subject, little wit.

Namby-Pamby is your guide,

Albion’s joy, Hibernia’s pride.”

—Henry Carey (1693?–1743)

“Our religion vulgarly stands on *numbers* of believers. Whenever the appeal is made—no matter how indirectly—to *numbers*, proclamation is then and there made, that religion is not. He that finds God a sweet, enveloping presence, who shall dare to come in?”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
