Famous quotes containing the word shock:

    There are persons who, when they cease to shock us, cease to interest us.
    —F.H. (Francis Herbert)

    Many readers judge of the power of a book by the shock it gives their feelings—as some savage tribes determine the power of muskets by their recoil; that being considered best which fairly prostrates the purchaser.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)

    I was not long since in a company where I wot not who of my fraternity brought news of a kind of pills, by true account, composed of a hundred and odd several ingredients; whereat we laughed very heartily, and made ourselves good sport; for what rock so hard were able to resist the shock or withstand the force of so thick and numerous a battery?
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
