Famous quotes containing the word situation:

    The abjection of our political situation is the only true challenge today. Only facing up to this situation in all its desperation can help us get out of it.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    There are situations in life to which the only satisfactory response is a physically violent one. If you don’t make that response, you continually relive the unresolved situation over and over in your life.
    Russell Hoban (b. 1925)

    When the situation is, what we would wish, nothing is so ill- timed as to hint at the circumstances which make it so: you thank Fortune ... you had reason—the heart knew it, and was satisfied; and who but an English philosopher would have sent notices of it to the brain to reverse the judgment?
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
