Famous quotes containing the word aim:

    In politics, as in religion, it is equally absurd to aim at making proselytes by fire and sword. Heresies in either can rarely be cured by persecution.
    Alexander Hamilton (1757–1804)

    If I had any doubts at all about the justice of my dislike for Shakespeare, that doubt vanished completely. What a crude, immoral, vulgar, and senseless work Hamlet is. The whole thing is based on pagan vengeance; the only aim is to gather together as many effects as possible; there is no rhyme or reason about it.
    Leo Tolstoy (1828–1910)

    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)
