Famous quotes containing the word histories:

    The delicious faces of children, the beauty of school-girls, “the sweet seriousness of sixteen,” the lofty air of well-born, well-bred boys, the passionate histories in the looks and manners of youth and early manhood, and the varied power in all that well-known company that escort us through life,—we know how these forms thrill, paralyze, provoke, inspire, and enlarge us.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The histories of the lives and fortunes of men are full of instances of this nature,—where favorable times and lucky accidents have done for them, what wisdom or skill could not.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    As soon as histories are properly told there is no more need of romances.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
