Famous quotes containing the words invalid and/or treaties:
“The invalid is a parasite on society. In a certain state it is indecent to go on living. To vegetate on in cowardly dependence on physicians and medicaments after the meaning of life, the right to life, has been lost ought to entail the profound contempt of society.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“The fate of the State decides theirs: clauses of treaties determine their affections.”
—Pierre Corneille (16061684)
