Flow my tears, fall from your springs,Exil'd for ever: let me mournWhere night's black bird her sad infamy sings,There let me live forlorn.
I do here in the most solemn and bitter manner curse the Prime Minister of England for having cumulated all his other betrayals of the national interest and honour, by his last terrible exhibition of dishonour, weakness and gullibility. The depths of infamy which our accurst "love of peace" can lower us are unfathomable.enoch powell
Art, thou hast many infamies, But not an infamy like this. O snap the fife and still the drum And show the monster as she is.R. Le Gallienne, The Illusion of War. Quotes reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 841-60.
Pride breakfasted with Plenty, dined with Poverty, and supped with infamy.Benjamin Franklin, p. 485. (Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895))
Under a more heroic Minister, and in a less self-seeking age, it is probablethat England would have preferred the risk, whatever its extent, to the infamy of betraying an ally whom she had enticed into peril. But our Ministry is not heroic; and our generation, though not indifferent to glory, prefers it when it is safe and cheap.Marquess of Salisbury Robert
The Hebrew race are my most inveterate enemies at home and abroad; they remain what they are and always were: the forgers of lies and the masterminds governing unrest, revolution, upheaval by spreading infamy with the help of their poisoned, caustic, satyrical spirit. If the world once wakes up it should mete out to them the punishment in store for them, which they deserve.Letter to Poultney Bigelow (14 April 1927), quoted in John C. G. Röhl, The Kaiser and his Court: Wilhelm II and the Government of Germany (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1996), p. 210.
