Famous quotes containing the words william s and/or morris:

    Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    We are, to put it mildly, in a mess, and there is a strong chance that we shall have exterminated ourselves by the end of the century. Our only consolation will have to be that, as a species, we have had an exciting term of office.
    —Desmond Morris (b. 1928)
