Famous quotes containing the words bill cosby, bill and/or cosby:

    The mother may be doing ninety percent of the disciplining, but the father still must have a full-time acceptance of all the children. He never must say, “Get these kids out of here; I’m trying to watch TV.” If he ever does start saying this, he is liable to see one of his kids on the six o’clock news.
    Bill Cosby (20th century)

    Meantime the education of the general mind never stops. The reveries of the true and simple are prophetic. What the tender poetic youth dreams, and prays, and paints today, but shuns the ridicule of saying aloud, shall presently be the resolutions of public bodies, then shall be carried as grievance and bill of rights through conflict and war, and then shall be triumphant law and establishment for a hundred years, until it gives place, in turn, to new prayers and pictures.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Any man today who returns from work, sinks into a chair, and calls for his pipe is a man with an appetite for danger.
    —Bill Cosby (20th century)
