Famous quotes containing the words ustinov and/or peter:

    There is no question but that if Jesus Christ, or a great prophet from another religion, were to come back today, he would find it virtually impossible to convince anyone of his credentials ... despite the fact that the vast evangelical machine on American television is predicated on His imminent return among us sinners.
    —Peter Ustinov (b. 1921)

    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
