Famous quotes containing the words current and/or efforts:

    But there, where I have garnered up my heart,
    Where either I must live or bear no life;
    The fountain from the which my current runs
    Or else dries up: to be discarded thence,
    Or keep it as a cistern for foul toads
    To knot and gender in!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    It’s immoral to steal, but you can take things.
    The dignity of his office is never impaired by the absence of efforts on his part to maintain it.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)
