Rate

Famous quotes containing the word rate:

    Strange that the vanity which accompanies beauty—excusable, perhaps, when there is such great beauty, or at any rate understandable—should persist after the beauty was gone.
    Mary A. [Elizabeth, Countess Von] Arnim (1866–1941)

    All of us failed to match our dreams of perfection. So I rate us on the basis of our splendid failure to do the impossible.
    William Faulkner (1897–1962)

    If we became students of Malcolm X, we would not have young black men out there killing each other like they’re killing each other now. Young black men would not be impregnating young black women at the rate going on now. We’d not have the drugs we have now, or the alcoholism.
    Spike Lee (b. 1956)
