Famous quotes containing the word grand:

    Unpretending mediocrity is good, and genius is glorious; but a weak flavor of genius in an essentially common person is detestable. It spoils the grand neutrality of a commonplace character, as the rinsings of an unwashed wine-glass spoil a draught of fair water.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)

    Ancient of days! august Athena! where,
    Where are thy men of might? thy grand in soul?
    Gone—glimmering through the dream of things that were.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    I was walking along and I’m looking at the tall buildings. And I got to thinking about what Thoreau said: “They created a lot of grand palaces here, but they forgot to create the noblemen to put in them.”
    Robert Riskin (1897–1955)
