Drunken

Famous quotes containing the word drunken:

    Will lovely, lively, virginal today
    Shatter for us with a wing’s drunken blow
    This hard, forgotten lake haunted in snow
    By the sheer ice of flocks not flown away!
    Stéphane Mallarmé (1842–1898)

    [The Settlement House] must be grounded in a philosophy whose foundation is on the solidarity of the human race, a philosophy which will not waver when the race happens to be represented by a drunken woman or an idiot boy.
    Jane Addams (1860–1935)

    What the horrors of war are, no one can imagine. They are not wounds and blood and fever, spotted and low, or dysentery, chronic and acute, cold and heat and famine. They are intoxication, drunken brutality, demoralisation and disorder on the part of the inferior ... jealousies, meanness, indifference, selfish brutality on the part of the superior.
    Florence Nightingale (1820–1910)
