Famous quotes containing the words universal and/or monsters:
“The universal regard for money is the one hopeful fact in our civilisation. Money is the most important thing in the world. It represents health, strength, honour, generosity and beauty.... Not the least of its virtues is that it destroys base people as certainly as it fortifies and dignifies noble people.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
“Weve forgotten what its like not to be able to reach the light switch. Weve forgotten a lot of the monsters that seemed to live in our room at night. Nevertheless, those memories are still there, somewhere inside us, and can sometimes be brought to the surface by events, sights, sounds, or smells. Children, though, can never have grown-up feelings until theyve been allowed to do the growing.”
—Fred Rogers (20th century)
