Famous quotes containing the word event:

    ... every event has had its cause, and nothing, not the least wind that blows, is accident or causeless. To understand what happens now one must find the cause, which may be very long ago in its beginning, but is surely there, and therefore a knowledge of history as detailed as possible is essential if we are to comprehend the past and be prepared for the future.
    Pearl S. Buck (1892–1973)

    There is no event greater in life than the appearance of new persons about our hearth, except it be the progress of the character which draws them.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    This event advertises me that there is such a fact as death,—the possibility of a man’s dying. It seems as if no man had ever died in America before; for in order to die you must first have lived.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
