Famous quotes containing the word grand:

    Philosophy is written in this grand book—I mean the universe—
    which stands continually open to our gaze, but it cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language and interpret the characters in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometrical figures, without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it.
    Galileo Galilei (1564–1642)

    Seeing to it that a youngster grows up believing not just in the here and now but also in the grand maybes of life guarantees that some small yet crucial part of him remains forever a child.
    Anne Cassidy (20th century)

    Sebastian. He is drunk now. Where had he wine?
    Alonzo. And Trinculo is reeling ripe. Where should they
    Find this grand liquor that hath gilded ‘em?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
