Famous quotes containing the words air and/or base:

    Every living language, like the perspiring bodies of living creatures, is in perpetual motion and alteration; some words go off, and become obsolete; others are taken in, and by degrees grow into common use; or the same word is inverted to a new sense or notion, which in tract of time makes an observable change in the air and features of a language, as age makes in the lines and mien of a face.
    Richard Bentley (1662–1742)

    I have always heard, Sancho, that doing good to base fellows is like throwing water into the sea.
