Famous quotes containing the words bourgeois and/or louise:

    In a higher phase of communist society ... only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be fully left behind and society inscribe on its banners: from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    If all feeling for grace and beauty were not extinguished in the mass of mankind at the actual moment, such a method of locomotion as cycling could never have found acceptance; no man or woman with the slightest aesthetic sense could assume the ludicrous position necessary for it.
    Ouida [Marie Louise De La Ramée] (1839–1908)
