Famous quotes containing the words arms and/or honours:

    On a flat road runs the well-trained runner,
    He is lean and sinewy with muscular legs,
    He is thinly clothed, he leans forward as he runs,
    With lightly closed fists and arms partially raised.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    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)
