Famous quotes containing the word fill:

    I pity the men whose natural pleasures are burthens, and who fly from joy ... as if it was really an evil in itself.... Poor unfortunate creature that he is! as if the causes of anguish in the heart were not enow—but he must fill up the measure, with those of caprice; and not only walk in a vain shadow,—but disquiet himself in vain too.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    Oh! Duty is an icy shadow. It will freeze you. It cannot fill the heart’s sanctuary.
    Augusta Evans (1835–1909)

    For me, the child is a veritable image of becoming, of possibility, poised to reach towards what is not yet, towards a growing that cannot be predetermined or prescribed. I see her and I fill the space with others like her, risking, straining, wanting to find out, to ask their own questions, to experience a world that is shared.
    Maxine Greene (20th century)
