Weapons

Famous quotes containing the word weapons:

    Advertisers are the interpreters of our dreams—Joseph interpreting for Pharaoh. Like the movies, they infect the routine futility of our days with purposeful adventure. Their weapons are our weaknesses: fear, ambition, illness, pride, selfishness, desire, ignorance. And these weapons must be kept as bright as a sword.
    —E.B. (Elwyn Brooks)

    I have always been of the mind that in a democracy manners are the only effective weapons against the bowie-knife.
    James Russell Lowell (1819–91)
