Famous quotes containing the words ace and/or tone:

    I do not object to Gladstone’s always having the ace of trumps up his sleeve, but only to his pretence that God had put it there.

    Boswell, when he speaks of his Life of Johnson, calls it my magnum opus, but it may more properly be called his opera, for it is truly a composition founded on a true story, in which there is a hero with a number of subordinate characters, and an alternate succession of recitative and airs of various tone and effect, all however in delightful animation.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)
