Famous quotes containing the words vincent and/or van:

    God, I can push the grass apart
    And lay my finger on Thy heart.
    —Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)

    An indirect quotation we can usually expect to rate only as better or worse, more or less faithful, and we cannot even hope for a strict standard of more and less; what is involved is evaluation, relative to special purposes, of an essentially dramatic act.
    —Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
