Jos�� Manuel Barroso Personal Life Honours Honorary Degrees

Famous quotes containing the words honours, degrees, life, manuel and/or personal:

    Vain men delight in telling what Honours have been done them, what great Company they have kept, and the like; by which they plainly confess, that these Honours were more than their Due, and such as their Friends would not believe if they had not been told: Whereas a Man truly proud, thinks the greatest Honours below his Merit, and consequently scorns to boast. I therefore deliver it as a Maxim that whoever desires the Character of a proud Man, ought to conceal his Vanity.
    Jonathan Swift (1667–1745)

    Always the laws of light are the same, but the modes and degrees of seeing vary.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The feeling about a soldier is, when all is said and done, he wasn’t really going to do very much with his life anyway. The example usually is: “he wasn’t going to compose Beethoven’s Fifth.”
    Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (b. 1922)

    And Manuel embraced his mother and they laughed together: Délira’s laugh sounded surprisingly young; that was because she hadn’t really had the chance to make it heard; life was just not happy enough for that. No, she never had time to use it; she had kept it fresh as can be, like a birdsong in an old nest.
    Jacques Roumain (1907–1945)

    Persecution was at least a sign of personal interest. Tolerance is composed of nine parts of apathy to one of brotherly love.
    Frank Moore Colby (1865–1925)
