Famous quotes containing the word difficult:

    In difficult and desperate cases, the boldest counsels are the safest.
    Titus Livius (Livy)

    The human plagiarism which is most difficult to avoid, for individuals ... is the plagiarism of ourself.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    To see ourselves as others see us can be eye-opening. To see others as sharing a nature with ourselves is the merest decency. But it is from the far more difficult achievement of seeing ourselves amongst others, as a local example of the forms human life has locally taken, a case among cases, a world among worlds, that the largeness of mind, without which objectivity is self- congratulation and tolerance a sham, comes.
    Clifford Geertz (b. 1926)
