Famous quotes containing the words common, ground and/or collective:

    ... exchanging platitudes, as Frenchmen do, for the pleasure of feeling their mouths full of the good meat of common sense.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    Just as the hand that strikes the ground cannot fail,
    So is the ruin certain of him who cherishes anger.
    Tiruvalluvar (c. 5th century A.D.)

    The popularity of disaster movies ... expresses a collective perception of a world threatened by irresistible and unforeseen forces which nevertheless are thwarted at the last moment. Their thinly veiled symbolic meaning might be translated thus: We are innocent of wrongdoing. We are attacked by unforeseeable forces come to harm us. We are, thus, innocent even of negligence. Though those forces are insuperable, chance will come to our aid and we shall emerge victorious.
    David Mamet (b. 1947)
