Famous quotes containing the word contribute:

    Though nature be ever so generous, yet can she not make a hero alone. Fortune must contribute her part too; and till both concur, the work cannot be perfected.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    We want our children to become warm, decent human beings who reach out generously to those in need. We hope they find values and ideals to give their lives purpose so they contribute to the world and make it a better place because they have lived in it. Intelligence, success, and high achievement are worthy goals, but they mean nothing if our children are not basically kind and loving people.
    Neil Kurshan (20th century)

    Nothing can contribute more to peace of soul than the lack of any opinion whatever.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
