Famous quotes containing the word host:

    Thrust, my daughter or son, to escape, there is none, none, none,
    Nor when all ponderous heaven’s host of waters breaks.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    The Landlord is a gentleman ... who does not earn his wealth. He has a host of agents and clerks that receive for him. He does not even take the trouble to spend his wealth. He has a host of people around him to do the actual spending. He never sees it until he comes to enjoy it. His sole function, his chief pride, is the stately consumption of wealth produced by others.
    David Lloyd George (1863–1945)

    Nothing is quite so wretchedly corrupt as an aristocracy which has lost its power but kept its wealth and which still has endless leisure to devote to nothing but banal enjoyments. All its great thoughts and passionate energy are things of the past, and nothing but a host of petty, gnawing vices now cling to it like worms to a corpse.
    Alexis de Tocqueville (1805–1859)
