Famous quotes containing the word agreement:

    There’s nothing is this world more instinctively abhorrent to me than finding myself in agreement with my fellow-humans.
    Malcolm Muggeridge (1903–1990)

    Now I appeal to you, brothers and sisters, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you be in agreement and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same purpose.
    Bible: New Testament, 1 Corinthians 1:10.

    No one can doubt, that the convention for the distinction of property, and for the stability of possession, is of all circumstances the most necessary to the establishment of human society, and that after the agreement for the fixing and observing of this rule, there remains little or nothing to be done towards settling a perfect harmony and concord.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
