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)

    I was not unemployed in my profession by the late John Jacob Astor; a name which, I admit, I love to repeat, for it hath a rounded and orbicular sound to it, and rings like unto bullion.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    “Obedience” and “law”Mthat is what one hears in all moral sentiments. But “caprice” and “freedom” might yet be the last sound that morality makes in the end.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
