Famous quotes containing the word degree:

    Suppose by chance you do get picked up. What have you done? You shot a horse; that isn’t first degree murder; in fact, it isn’t even murder; in fact, I don’t know what it is.
    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)

    A certain degree of ceremony is a necessary outwork of manners, as well as of religion; it keeps the forward and petulant at a proper distance, and is a very small restraint to the sensible and to the well-bred part of the world.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    The eloquence of one stimulates all the rest, some up to the speaking-point, and all others to a degree that makes them good receivers and conductors, and they avenge themselves for their enforced silence by increased loquacity on their return.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
