Adopted

Famous quotes containing the word adopted:

    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)

    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)

    Cold and hunger seem more friendly to my nature than those methods which men have adopted and advise to ward them off.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
