Famous quotes containing the words grand and/or final:
“The great object of Education should be commensurate with the object of life. It should be a moral one; to teach self-trust: to inspire the youthful man with an interest in himself; with a curiosity touching his own nature; to acquaint him with the resources of his mind, and to teach him that there is all his strength, and to inflame him with a piety towards the Grand Mind in which he lives. Thus would education conspire with the Divine Providence.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“The final aim is not to know, but to be.... Youve got to know yourself so that you can at last be yourself. Be yourself is the last motto.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
