Points

Famous quotes containing the word points:

    The men who carry their points do not need to inquire of their constituents what they should say, but are themselves the country which they represent: nowhere are its emotions or opinions so instant and so true as in them; nowhere so pure from a selfish infusion.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Mankind is not a circle with a single center but an ellipse with two focal points of which facts are one and ideas the other.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    Every man has to learn the points of the compass again as often as he awakes, whether from sleep or any abstraction.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
