Famous quotes containing the word sound:

    Today we seek a moral basis for peace.... It cannot be a lasting peace if the fruit of it is oppression, or starvation, cruelty, or human life dominated by armed camps. It cannot be a sound peace if small nations must live in fear of powerful neighbors. It cannot be a moral peace if freedom from invasion is sold for tribute.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)

    A general loathing of a gang or sect usually has some sound basis in instinct.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
