Famous quotes containing the words state and/or golden:

    To reduce the imagination to a state of slavery—even though it would mean the elimination of what is commonly called happiness—is to betray all sense of absolute justice within oneself. Imagination alone offers me some intimation of what can be.
    André Breton (1896–1966)

    Nor envy’s snaky eye, finds harbour here,
    Nor flatterers’ venomous insinuations,
    Nor cunning humorists’ puddled opinions,
    Nor courteous ruin of proffered usury,
    Nor time prattled away, cradle of ignorance,
    Nor causeless duty, nor comber of arrogance,
    Nor trifling title of vanity dazzleth us,
    Nor golden manacles stand for a paradise;
    Sir Philip Sidney (1554–1586)
