Famous quotes containing the word order:

    People press toward the light not in order to see better but in order to shine better.—We are happy to regard the one before whom we shine as light.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    A wise man should order his interests, and set them all in their proper places. This order is often troubled by greed, which puts us upon pursuing so many things at once that, in eagerness for matters of less consideration, we grasp at trifles, and let go things of greater value.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better?
    Jane Nelson (20th century)
