Famous quotes containing the word remain:

    The world is for thousands a freak show; the images flicker past and vanish; the impressions remain flat and unconnected in the soul. Thus they are easily led by the opinions of others, are content to let their impressions be shuffled and rearranged and evaluated differently.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    If we want everything to remain as it is, it will be necessary for everything to change.
    Giuseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa (1896–1957)

    Public administrators would get along better if they would restrain the impulse to butt in or be dragged into trouble. They should remain silent until an issue is reduced to its lowest terms, until it boils down into something like a moral issue.
    Calvin Coolidge (1872–1933)
