Constancy is the chimera of love  (Chimera Quotes) If it’s a chimera alert, we just follows the screams  (Chimera Quotes) Nature is only another chimera  (Chimera Quotes) Since there must be chimeras, why is not perfection the chimera of all men?  (Chimera Quotes) Without democracy freedom is a chimera  (Chimera Quotes) Truth and fact are old-fashioned and out-of-date, my friends, fit only for the dull and vulgar to live by. Appearance, not reality, is what the clever dog grasps at in these clever days. We spurn the dull-brown solid earth; we build our lives and homes in the fair-seeming rainbow-land of shadow and chimera  (Chimera Quotes) No man ever freely surrendered a portion of his own liberty for the sake of the public good; such a chimera appears only in fiction. If it were possible, we would each prefer that the pacts binding others did not bind us; every man sees himself as the centre of all the world’s affairs.  (Chimera Quotes) I was a terrible painter - my portraits looked like the evil chimera love-children of Picasso’s demoiselles and the BBC test card clown.  (Chimera Quotes) To call everything that appears illogical, fantasy, fairy tale, or chimera would be practically to admit not understanding nature  (Chimera Quotes) Timorous virgins form a dreadful chimera of a husband, as of a creature quite contrary to that soft, humble, pliant, easy thing, a lover  (Chimera Quotes) The soul languishing in obscurity contracts a kind of rust, or abandons itself to the chimera of presumption; for it is natural for it to acquire something, even when separated from any one  (Chimera Quotes) Justice itself is a chimera, a delusion. Justice is not a flat yardstick, applied in equal measure to an equal situation  (Chimera Quotes) No more fatuous chimera has ever infested the brain than that you can control opinions by law or direct belief by statute, and no more pernicious sentiment ever tormented the heart than the barbarous desire to do so. The field of inquiry should remain open, and the right of debate must be regarded as a sacred right  (Chimera Quotes) Human history, like all great movements, was cyclical, and returned to the point of beginning. The idea of indefinite progress in a right line was a chimera of the imagination, with no analogue in nature. The parabola of a comet was perhaps a yet better illustration of the career of humanity. Tending upward and sunward from the aphelion of barbarism, the race attained the perihelion of civilization only to plunge downward once more to its nether goal in the regions of chaos  (Chimera Quotes) One must do no violence to nature, nor model it in conformity to any blindly formed chimera  (Chimera Quotes) If new species arise very rapidly in small, peripherally isolated local populations, then the great expectation of insensibly graded fossil sequences is a chimera. A new species does not evolve in the area of its ancestors; it does not arise from the slow transformation of all its forbears. co-author with Niles Eldridge  (Chimera Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
