Famous quotes containing the words bounty and/or hunter:
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep. The more I give to thee
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“I dont see black people as victims even though we are exploited. Victims are flat, one- dimensional characters, someone rolled over by a steamroller so you have a cardboard person. We are far more resilient and more rounded than that. I will go on showing theres more to us than our being victimized. Victims are dead.”
—Kristin Hunter (b. 1931)
