Arrested

Famous quotes containing the word arrested:

    Christ in this country would quite likely have been arrested under the Suppression of Communism act.

    Sabbath. A weekly festival having its origin in the fact that God made the world in six days and was arrested on the seventh.
    Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914)

    Language is the amber in which a thousand precious and subtle thoughts have been safely embedded and preserved. It has arrested ten thousand lightning flashes of genius, which, unless thus fixed and arrested, might have been as bright, but would have also been as quickly passing and perishing, as the lightning.
    Richard Chenevix Trench (1807–1886)
