Famous quotes with Counterfeiter

  • God is the Creator; Satan is the counterfeiter.
    Edwin Louis Cole
  • So long as the body is affected through the mind, no audacious device, even of the most manifestly dishonest character, can fail of producing occasional good to those who yield it an implicit or even a partial faith.

    Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
