Famous quotes containing the word throwing:

    The unbosoming oneself to another is a kind of release to the soul, which strives to lighten its burden and find ease by throwing off the weight that lay heavy upon it.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Nothing more powerfully excites any affection than to conceal some part of its object, by throwing it into a kind of shade, which at the same time that it shows enough to prepossess us in favour of the object, leaves still some work for the imagination.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
