### Famous quotes containing the word distribution:

“In this *distribution* of functions, the scholar is the delegated intellect. In the right state, he is, Man Thinking. In the degenerate state, when the victim of society, he tends to become a mere thinker, or, still worse, the parrot of other men’s thinking.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

“My topic for Army reunions ... this summer: How to prepare for war in time of peace. Not by fortifications, by navies, or by standing armies. But by policies which will add to the happiness and the comfort of all our people and which will tend to the *distribution* of intelligence [and] wealth equally among all. Our strength is a contented and intelligent community.”

—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

“Classical and romantic: private language of a family quarrel, a dead dispute over the *distribution* of emphasis between man and nature.”

—Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)
