Famous quotes containing the words anderson and/or william:

    ...I didn’t consider intellectuals intelligent, I never liked them or their thoughts about life. I defined them as people who care nothing for argument, who are interested only in information; or as people who have a preference for learning things rather than experiencing them. They have opinions but no point of view.... Their talk is the gloomiest type of human discourse I know.... This is a red flag to my nature. Intellectuals, to me have no natures ...
    —Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)

    The sisters, cousins, aunts, and niece,
    And widowed ma of Captain Reece,
    Attended there as they were bid;
    It was their duty, and they did.
    —Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
