Famous quotes containing the word occur:

    When great changes occur in history, when great principles are involved, as a rule the majority are wrong.
    Eugene V. Debs (1855–1926)

    It is so wonderful to our neurologists that a man can see without his eyes, that it does not occur to them that is just as wonderful that he should see with them; and that is ever the difference between the wise and the unwise: the latter wonders at what is unusual, the wise man wonders at the usual.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
