Famous quotes containing the words prize, arthur and/or rense:

    Then, though I prize my friends, I cannot afford to talk with them and study their visions, lest I lose my own. It would indeed give me a certain household joy to quit this lofty seeking, this spiritual astronomy, or search of stars, and come down to warm sympathies with you; but then I know well I shall mourn always the vanishing of my mighty gods.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
    —Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)

    When I quit working, I lost all sense of identity in about fifteen minutes.
    —Paige Rense (b. 1929)
