Removed

Famous quotes containing the word removed:

    Mortality, behold, and fear,
    What a change of flesh is here!
    Think how many royal bones
    Sleep within this heap of stones,
    Hence removed from beds of ease,
    Dainty fare, and what might please,
    Francis Beaumont (1584-1616)

    What matters it that man should have a little more knowledge of the universe? If he has it, he gets little higher. Is he not always infinitely removed from the end, and is not the duration of our life equally removed from eternity, even if it lasts ten years longer?
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    The detective novel is the art-for-art’s-sake of our yawning Philistinism, the classic example of a specialized form of art removed from contact with the life it pretends to build on.
    —V.S. (Victor Sawdon)
