Sustained

Famous quotes containing the word sustained:

    Trusting as we did to the virtue of the people, the real people, not the politicians and demagogues, we passed through the most responsible and trying scenes, sustained by the bone and sinew of the nation, the laborers of the land, where alone, in these days of Bank rule, and ragocrat corruption, real virtue and love of liberty is to be found.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    I’ve arrived at the age where a platonic friendship can be sustained on the highest moral plane.
    Charlie Chaplin (1889–1977)

    The usual derivation of the word Metaphysics is not to be sustained ... the science is supposed to take its name from its superiority to physics. The truth is, that Aristotle’s treatise on Morals is next in succession to his Book of Physics.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
