Famous quotes containing the word amount:

    One cannot demand of a scholar that he show himself a scholar everywhere in society, but the whole tenor of his behavior must none the less betray the thinker, he must always be instructive, his way of judging a thing must even in the smallest matters be such that people can see what it will amount to when, quietly and self-collected, he puts this power to scholarly use.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    There is a great amount of poetry in unconscious
    fastidiousness.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)

    Most people get a fair amount of fun out of their lives, but on balance life is suffering, and only the very young or the very foolish imagine otherwise.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)
