Famous quotes containing the words davy and/or fitzgerald:

    The wealth and prosperity of the country are only the comeliness of the body, the fullness of the flesh and fat; but the spirit is independent of them; it requires only muscle, bone and nerve for the true exercise of its functions. We cannot lose our liberty, because we cannot cease to think.
    Humphry, Sir Davy (1778–1829)

    I talk with the authority of failure—Ernest with the authority of success. We could never sit across the same table again.
    —F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)
