Famous quotes containing the word limit:

    There is a limit to the application of democratic methods. You can inquire of all the passengers as to what type of car they like to ride in, but it is impossible to question them as to whether to apply the brakes when the train is at full speed and accident threatens.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)

    There is no limit to what a man can do so long as he does not care a straw who gets the credit for it.
    —C.E. (Charles Edward)

    We live in oppressive times. We have, as a nation, become our own thought police; but instead of calling the process by which we limit our expression of dissent and wonder “censorship,” we call it “concern for commercial viability.”
    David Mamet (b. 1947)
