Famous quotes containing the words figures and/or historical:

    The human heart concerns us more than the poring into microscopes, and is larger than can be measured by the pompous figures of the astronomer.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Some minds are as little logical or argumentative as nature; they can offer no reason or “guess,” but they exhibit the solemn and incontrovertible fact. If a historical question arises, they cause the tombs to be opened. Their silent and practical logic convinces the reason and the understanding at the same time. Of such sort is always the only pertinent question and the only satisfactory reply.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
