Tests

Famous quotes containing the word tests:

    Every perversion has survived many tests of its capabilities.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    One of the tests of the civilization of people is the treatment of its criminals.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    It is not the literal past that rules us, save, possibly, in a biological sense. It is images of the past.... Each new historical era mirrors itself in the picture and active mythology of its past or of a past borrowed from other cultures. It tests its sense of identity, of regress or new achievement against that past.
    George Steiner (b. 1929)
