Famous quotes containing the words garbage and, garbage and/or opposing:

    And true, they are hurling spittle, rock,
    Garbage and fruit in Little Rock.
    And I saw coiling storm a-writhe
    On bright madonnas. And a scythe
    Of men harassing brownish girls.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    But could a dream send up through onion fumes
    Its white and violet, fight with fried potatoes
    And yesterday’s garbage ripening in the hall,
    Flutter, or sing an aria down these rooms
    Even if we were willing to let it in,
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    The principle of majority rule is the mildest form in which the force of numbers can be exercised. It is a pacific substitute for civil war in which the opposing armies are counted and the victory is awarded to the larger before any blood is shed. Except in the sacred tests of democracy and in the incantations of the orators, we hardly take the trouble to pretend that the rule of the majority is not at bottom a rule of force.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)
