Armor

Famous quotes containing the word armor:

    Certain anthropologists hold that man, having discovered tools, ceased to evolve biologically. Animals, never having discovered them, continue to fashion drills out of their beaks, oars out of their hind feet, wings out of their forefeet, suits of armor out of their hides, levers out of their horns, saws out of their teeth. Whether this be true or not, all authorities agree that man is the tool-using animal. It sets him off from the rest of the animal kingdom as drastically as does speech.
    Stuart Chase (1888–1985)

    In such an armor he may rise and raid
    The dark cave after midnight, unafraid....
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    The humblest citizen of all the land, when clad in the armor of a righteous cause, is stronger than all the hosts of error.
    William Jennings Bryan (1860–1925)
