Famous quotes containing the word excited:

    Those people have no real interest in a science who only begin to get excited about it when they themselves have made discoveries in it.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    In excited conversation we have glimpses of the universe, hints of power native to the soul, far-darting lights and shadows of an Andes landscape, such as we can hardly attain in lone meditation. Here are oracles sometimes profusely given, to which the memory goes back in barren hours.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I never learned which party was victorious, nor the cause of the war; but I felt for the rest of that day as if I had had my feelings excited and harrowed by witnessing the struggle, the ferocity and carnage, of a human battle before my door.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
