Famous quotes containing the word due:

    But in all things whether we shall make only a due use of the liberties we have asked, is left entirely to the judicious reader to decide.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    The Oriental philosophy approaches easily loftier themes than the modern aspires to; and no wonder if it sometimes prattle about them. It only assigns their due rank respectively to Action and Contemplation, or rather does full justice to the latter. Western philosophers have not conceived of the significance of Contemplation in their sense.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    As a rule, all heroism is due to a lack of reflection, and thus it is necessary to maintain a mass of imbeciles. If they once understand themselves the ruling men will be lost.
    Ernest Renan (1823–1892)
