Famous quotes containing the word fail:

    When we stand the truth on its head we generally fail to notice that our head is not standing where it should be standing either.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    People who are not in love fail to understand how an intelligent man can suffer because of a very ordinary woman. This is like being surprised that anyone should be stricken with cholera because of a creature so insignificant as the common bacillus.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    Love, my fate got luckily,
    Teaches with no telling
    That the phoenix’ bid for heaven and the desire after
    Death in the carved nunnery
    Both shall fail if I bow not to your blessing....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
