Famous quotes containing the word secret:

    Freedom’s secret wilt thou know?—
    Counsel not with flesh and blood;
    Loiter not for cloak or food;
    Right thou feelest, rush to do.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The great secret of succeeding in conversation is to admire little, to hear much; always to distrust our own reason, and sometimes that of our friends; never to pretend to wit, but to make that of others appear as much as possibly we can; to hearken to what is said and to answer to the purpose.
    Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)

    Come now, let us go and be dumb. Let us sit with our hands on our mouths, a long, austere, Pythagorean lustrum. Let us live in corners, and do chores, and suffer, and weep, and drudge, with eyes and hearts that love the Lord. Silence, seclusion, austerity, may pierce deep into the grandeur and secret of our being, and so diving, bring up out of secular darkness, the sublimities of the moral constitution.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
