Provoked

Famous quotes containing the word provoked:

    I find my wife hath something in her gizzard, that only waits an opportunity of being provoked to bring up; but I will not, for my content-sake, give it.
    Samuel Pepys (1633–1703)

    No Vice or Wickedness, which People fall into from Indulgence to Desires which are natural to all, ought to place them below the Compassion of the virtuous Part of the World; which indeed often makes me a little apt to suspect the Sincerity of their Virtue, who are too warmly provoked at other Peoples personal Sins.
    Richard Steele (1672–1729)

    Whoever has provoked men to rage against him has always gained a party in his favor, too.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
