Adopted

Famous quotes containing the word adopted:

    It is bad luck for world history that of all people the Russians adopted Communism, because they are totally unfit for it.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    Although all new ideas are born in France, they are not readily adopted there. It seems that they must first commence to prosper in a foreign country.
    Sarah Bernhardt (1845–1923)

    I can never suppose this country so far lost to all ideas of self-importance as to be willing to grant America independence; if that could ever be adopted I shall despair of this country being ever preserved from a state of inferiority and consequently falling into a very low class among the European States.
    George III (1738–1820)
