Famous quotes containing the word combined:

    ... overconfidence in one’s own ability is the root of much evil. Vanity, egoism, is the deadliest of all characteristics. This vanity, combined with extreme ignorance of conditions the knowledge of which is the very A B C of business and of life, produces more shipwrecks and heartaches than any other part of our mental make-up.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)

    I am absurdly fearful about this voyage. Various little omens have combined to give me a dark feeling.... Perhaps we shall live to laugh at these. But in case of mishap I should perish with my husband and child, perhaps to be transferred to some happier state.
    Margaret Fuller (1810–1850)

    A taste for drink, combined with gout,
    Had doubled him up forever.
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
