Dangerous

Famous quotes containing the word dangerous:

    It is dangerous to leave written that which is badly written. A chance word, upon paper, may destroy the world. Watch carefully and erase, while the power is still yours, I say to myself, for all that is put down, once it escapes, may rot its way into a thousand minds, the corn become a black smut, and all libraries, of necessity, be burned to the ground as a consequence. Only one answer: write carelessly so that nothing that is not green will survive.
    William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    The true man wants two things: danger and play. For that reason he wants woman, as the most dangerous plaything.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    No one is more dangerous than he who imagines himself pure in heart: for his purity, by definition, is unassailable.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)
