Famous quotes containing the word claim:

    What I claim is to live to the full the contradiction of my time, which may well make sarcasm the condition of truth.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    The consequences of our actions grab us by the scruff of our necks, quite indifferent to our claim that we have “gotten better” in the meantime.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    President Kennedy had a wholesome, widely discussed, and largely deserved reputation for his interest in women.... But no President, however young and energetic, could possibly have gotten around to all the ladies in Washington, New York, and Hollywood who made claim to his affections after he died.... Such was the force of Jack Kennedy and the manner of his death that anyone associated with him, even the pretenders, assumed added glamour and interest.
    Barbara Howar (b. 1934)
