Famous quotes containing the word motives:

    Living en famille provides the strongest motives for rudeness combined with the maximum opportunity for displaying it.
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    Never ascribe to an opponent motives meaner than your own.
    —J.M. (James Matthew)

    There seems to be a kind of order in the universe, in the movement of the stars and the turning of the earth and the changing of the seasons, and even in the cycle of human life. But human life itself is almost pure chaos. Everyone takes his stance, asserts his own rights and feelings, mistaking the motives of others, and his own.
    Katherine Anne Porter (1890–1980)
