Recorded Breeding

Famous quotes containing the words recorded and/or breeding:

    The force of truth that a statement imparts, then, its prominence among the hordes of recorded observations that I may optionally apply to my own life, depends, in addition to the sense that it is argumentatively defensible, on the sense that someone like me, and someone I like, whose voice is audible and who is at least notionally in the same room with me, does or can possibly hold it to be compellingly true.
    Nicholson Baker (b. 1957)

    A man’s own good breeding is his best security against other people’s ill-manners.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
