Famous quotes containing the words worm and/or base:
“Is man no more than this? Consider him well. Thou owst the worm no silk, the beast no hide, the sheep no wool, the cat no perfume. Heres three ons are sophisticated. Thou art the thing itself; unaccommodated man is no more than such a poor, bare, forked animal as thou art.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
“The base emotions Plato banned
have left a radio-active and not radiant land.”
—Libby Houston (b. 1941)
