Famous quotes containing the word shown:
“... there are some who, believing that all is for the best in the best of possible worlds, and that to-morrow is necessarily better than to-day, may think that if culture is a good thing we shall infallibly be found to have more of it that we had a generation since; and that if we can be shown not to have more of it, it can be shown not to be worth seeking.”
—Katharine Fullerton Gerould (18791944)
“I should be very willing to redress
Mens wrongs, and rather check than punish crimes,
Had not Cervantes, in that all too true tale
Of Quixote, shown how all such efforts fail.”
—George Gordon Noel Byron (17881824)
“If it is asserted that civilization is a real advance in the condition of man,and I think that it is, though only the wise improve their advantages,it must be shown that it has produced better dwellings without making them more costly; and the cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
