Famous quotes containing the word separate:

    Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
    And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
    Eagerly I wished the morrow;Mvainly I had sought to borrow
    From my books surcease of sorrow—sorrow for the lost Lenore—
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    The chief assertion of religious morality is that white is a colour. Virtue is not the absence of vices or the avoidance of moral dangers; virtue is a vivid and separate thing, like pain or a particular smell.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    The greatest blunders, like the thickest ropes, are often compounded of a multitude of strands. Take the rope apart, separate it into the small threads that compose it, and you can break them one by one. You think, “That is all there was!” But twist them all together and you have something tremendous.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
