Famous quotes containing the word practice:

    Those who make a practice of comparing human actions are never so perplexed as when they try to see them as a whole and in the same light; for they commonly contradict each other so strangely that it seems impossible that they have come from the same shop.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    By practice and conviction formed,
    With ancient stubbornness ingrained,
    Although her body clung and swarmed,
    My own identity remained.
    Yvor Winters (1900–1968)

    Alas for the cripple Practice when it seeks to come up with the bird Theory, which flies before it. Try your design on the best school. The scholars are of all ages and temperaments and capacities. It is difficult to class them, some are too young, some are slow, some perverse. Each requires so much consideration, that the morning hope of the teacher, of a day of love and progress, is often closed at evening by despair.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
