„.. because in this way the form will be perfect and not reduced, which is the worst thing that can happen to a figure.“

—  El Greco Greek painter, sculptor and architect 1541 - 1614

„You know Obamacare is really I think the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery, and it is in a way, it is slavery in a way, because it is making all of us subservient to the government, and it was never about health care. It was about control.“

—  Ben Carson 17th and current United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development; American neurosurgeon 1951
As quoted in "Ben Carson: Obamacare worst thing ‘since slavery’" https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2013/10/11/ben-carson-obamacare-worst-thing-since-slavery/, Washington Post (October 11, 2013)

„You never have to practice deception. God always provides a way out.“

—  Christine O'Donnell American Tea Party politician and former Republican Party candidate 1969
Context: Eddie Izzard: What if someone comes to you in the middle of the Second World War and says, "Do you have any Jewish people in your house?" and you do have them. That would be a lie. That would be disrespectful to Hitler. Christine O'Donnell: I believe if I were in that situation, God would provide a way to do the right thing righteously. I believe that! Bill Maher: God is not there. Hitler's there and you're there. Christine O'Donnell: You never have to practice deception. God always provides a way out.

„I shall always believe that it was his own story under another name, and I love to believe it because it was so exactly his way of looking at things...“

—  Paul Bourget French writer 1852 - 1935
Context: The story he told me was "per sfogarsi," as Bayle loved to say; his idea was that I would not discover the real hero. I shall always believe that it was his own story under another name, and I love to believe it because it was so exactly his way of looking at things...

„If people were always kind and obedient to those who are cruel and unjust; the wicked people would have it all their own way: they would never feel afraid, and so they would never alter, but would grow worse and worse.“

—  Charlotte Brontë English novelist and poet 1816 - 1855
Context: If people were always kind and obedient to those who are cruel and unjust; the wicked people would have it all their own way: they would never feel afraid, and so they would never alter, but would grow worse and worse. When we are struck at without a reason, we should strike back again very hard; I am sure we should — so hard as to teach the person who struck us never to do it again. Jane to Helen Burns (Ch. 6)
