Famous quotes containing the words china, censorship and/or republic:

    Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve, I’ve dreamed of havin’ my own things about me. My spinet over there and a table here. My own chairs to rest upon and a dresser over there in that corner, and my own china and pewter shinin’ about me.
    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)

    Right now I think censorship is necessary; the things they’re doing and saying in films right now just shouldn’t be allowed. There’s no dignity anymore and I think that’s very important.
    Mae West (1892–1980)

    No republic is more real than that of letters, and I am the last in principles, as I am the least in pretensions to any dictatorship in it.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
