Famous quotes containing the word call:

    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    It is no great art to say something briefly when, like Tacitus, one has something to say; when one has nothing to say, however, and none the less writes a whole book and makes truth ... into a liar—that I call an achievement.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    You cannot have Liberty in this world without what you call Moral Virtue, & you cannot have Moral Virtue without the slavery of that half of the human race who hate what you call Moral Virtue.
    William Blake (1757–1827)
