Famous quotes containing the word walls:

    Thou stately stream that with the swelling tide
    ‘Gainst London walls incessantly dost beat,
    Thou Thames, I say, where barge and boat doth ride,
    And snow-white swans do fish for needful meat:
    George Turberville (1821–1873)

    Do you know what Agelisas said, when he was asked why the great city of Lacedomonie was not girded with walls? Because, pointing out the inhabitants and citizens of the city, so expert in military discipline and so strong and well armed: “Here,” he said, “are the walls of the city,” meaning that there is no wall but of bones, and that towns and cities can have no more secure nor stronger wall than the virtue of their citizens and inhabitants.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    Wherever there are walls I shall inscribe this eternal accusation against Christianity upon them—I can write in letters which make even the blind see ... I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct for revenge for which no expedient is sufficiently poisonous, secret, subterranean, petty—I call it the one immortal blemish of mankind....
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
