Famous quotes containing the word aim:

    Culture must have its ultimate aim in the metaphysical or it will cease to be culture.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    Though I am young and cannot tell
    Either what death or love is well,
    Yet I have heard they both bear darts,
    And both do aim at human hearts:
    And then again, I have been told,
    Love wounds with heat, as death with cold;
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)

    To attempt the destruction of our passions is the height of folly. What a noble aim is that of the zealot who tortures himself like a madman in order to desire nothing, love nothing, feel nothing, and who, if he succeeded, would end up a complete monster!
    Denis Diderot (1713–1784)
