Famous quotes containing the words circuit and/or fault:

    Within the circuit of this plodding life
    There enter moments of an azure hue,
    Untarnished fair as is the violet
    Or anemone, when the spring strews them
    By some meandering rivulet, which make
    The best philosophy untrue that aims
    But to console man for his grievances.
    I have remembered when the winter came,
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If you give me your attention, I will tell you what I am:
    I’m a genuine philanthropist—all other kinds are sham.
    Each little fault of temper and each social defect
    In my erring fellow creatures, I endeavor to correct.
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
