George Eliot Quote
“An election is coming. Universal peace is declared, and the foxes have a sincere interest in prolonging the lives of the poultry.”
Felix Holt, the Radical (1866).
“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.”
As quoted in: Vanity Fair, Volume 54 (1991), p. 136
“I can hear you, the rest of the world can hear you and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”
