Famous quotes containing the word general:

    Every gazette brings accounts of the untutored freaks of the wind,—shipwrecks and hurricanes which the mariner and planter accept as special or general providences; but they touch our consciences, they remind us of our sins. Another deluge would disgrace mankind.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A constitutional statesman is in general a man of common opinions and uncommon abilities.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)
