Plain Tiger

Famous quotes containing the words plain and/or tiger:

    Civilization has not ever been the brother of equality. Freedom was born among the wild eyries in the mountains; and barbarous tribes have sheltered under her wings, when the enlightened people of the plain have nestled under different pinions.

    As a tiger may lose its footing on soft ground, so people may be tripped up by sweet words.
