Pure State

Famous quotes containing the words pure and/or state:

    Honesty, respectability, the “what-will-people-say”, the wisdom of nations, nothing means anything any more. Everything disappears before fear. Fear, eh, Caesonia, that noble sentiment, unallayed, pure and disinterested, one of those rare ones that get their nobility from the belly.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    The superficiality of the American is the result of his hustling. It needs leisure to think things out; it needs leisure to mature. People in a hurry cannot think, cannot grow, nor can they decay. They are preserved in a state of perpetual puerility.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
