Famous quotes containing the word suppose:

    I can’t help detesting my relations. I suppose it comes from the fact that none of us can stand other people having the same faults as ourselves.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    A wicked mortal is not the idea of God. He is little else than the expression of error. To suppose that sin, lust, hatred, envy, hypocrisy, revenge, have life abiding in them, is a terrible mistake. Life and Life’s idea, Truth and Truth’s idea, never make men sick, sinful, or mortal.
    Mary Baker Eddy (1821–1910)

    Dr. Craigle: A good man, completely reliable. Not given to overcharging and stringing visits out, the way some do.
    Phil Green: Do you mean the way some doctors do or do you mean the way some Jewish doctors do?
    Dr. Craigle: I suppose you’re right. I suppose some of us do it, too. Not just the Chosen People.
    Moss Hart (1904–1961)
