Famous quotes containing the word attempts:

    Society gains nothing whilst a man, not himself renovated, attempts to renovate things around him; he has become tediously good in some particular but negligent or narrow in the rest; and hypocrisy and vanity are often the disgusting result.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Because the soul is progressive, it never quite repeats itself, but in every act attempts the production of a new and fairer whole.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In modern America, anyone who attempts to write satirically about the events of the day finds it difficult to concoct a situation so bizarre that it may not actually come to pass while his article is still on the presses.
    Calvin Trillin (b. 1940)
