Famous quotes containing the word strike:

    Man, at least when educated, is a pessimist. He believes it safer not to reflect on his achievements; Jove is known to strike such people down.
    John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908)

    At any street corner the feeling of absurdity can strike any man in the face.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    Besides, our action on each other, good as well as evil, is so incidental and at random, that we can seldom hear the acknowledgments of any person who would thank us for a benefit, without some shame and humiliation. We can rarely strike a direct stroke, but must be content with an oblique one; we seldom have the satisfaction of yielding a direct benefit, which is directly received.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
