Famous quotes containing the word libel:

    Nor do they trust their tongue alone,
    But speak a language of their own;
    Can read a nod, a shrug, a look,
    Far better than a printed book;
    Convey a libel in a frown,
    And wink a reputation down.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    Middle-aged adolescents are a libel on the real thing.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
