Famous quotes containing the word formed:

    Opinions are not to be learned by rote, like the letters of an alphabet, or the words of a dictionary. They are conclusions to be formed, and formed by each individual in the sacred and free citadel of the mind, and there enshrined beyond the arm of law to reach, or force to shake; ay! and beyond the right of impertinent curiosity to violate, or presumptuous arrogance to threaten.
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)

    A nose, kind sir! Sure, Mother Nature,
    With all her freaks, ne’er formed this feature.
    If such were mine, I’d try and trade it,
    And swear the gods had never made it.
    Susanna Moodie (1803–1885)

    She discovered with great delight that one does not love one’s children just because they are one’s children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
    —Gabriel García Márquez (b. 1928)
