Famous quotes containing the word order:

—Claude Lévi-Strauss (b. 1908)
“The one book necessary to be understood by a divine, is the Bible; any others are to be read, chiefly, in order to understand that.”
—Francis Lockier (16681740)
“You cannot have one well-bred man without a whole society of such. They keep each other up to any high point. Especially women;Mit requires a great many cultivated women,saloons of bright, elegant, reading women, accustomed to ease and refinement, to spectacles, pictures, sculpture, poetry, and to elegant society, in order that you have one Madame de Staël.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
