Famous quotes containing the word bits:

    Many bits of fox fur will make a fine robe.
    Chinese proverb.

    Assemble, first, all casual bits and scraps
    That may shake down into a world perhaps;
    People this world, by chance created so,
    With random persons whom you do not know—
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    What in fact have I achieved, however much it may seem? Bits and pieces ... trivialities. But here they won’t tolerate anything else, or anything more. If I wanted to take one step in advance of the current views and opinions of the day, that would put paid to any power I have. Do you know what we are ... those of us who count as pillars of society? We are society’s tools, neither more nor less.
    Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906)
