Famous quotes containing the word state:

    A state ... arises, as I conceive, out of the needs of mankind; no one is self-sufficing, but all of us have many wants.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    My facts shall be falsehoods to the common sense. I would so state facts that they shall be significant, shall be myths or mythologic. Facts which the mind perceived, thoughts which the body thought—with these I deal.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Wooing, wedding, and repenting, is as a Scotch jig, a measure, and a cinquepace; the first suit is hot and hasty, like a Scotch jig, and full as fantastical; the wedding, mannerly-modest, as a measure, full of state and ancientry; and then comes repentance and, with his bad legs, falls into the cinquepace faster and faster, till he sink into his grave.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
