Famous quotes containing the word activity:

    Amour is the one human activity of any importance in which laughter and pleasure preponderate, if ever so slightly, over misery and pain.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    A worm is as good a traveler as a grasshopper or a cricket, and a much wiser settler. With all their activity these do not hop away from drought nor forward to summer. We do not avoid evil by fleeing before it, but by rising above or diving below its plane; as the worm escapes drought and frost by boring a few inches deeper.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Labor is work that leaves no trace behind it when it is finished, or if it does, as in the case of the tilled field, this product of human activity requires still more labor, incessant, tireless labor, to maintain its identity as a “work” of man.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
