Famous quotes containing the word fix:

    Idleness and constancy fix the mind to what it finds easy and agreeable. This habit always confines and cramps up our knowledge; and no one has ever taken the trouble to stretch and carry his understanding as far as it could go.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Firmness yclept in heroes, kings and seamen,
    That is, when they succeed; but greatly blamed
    As obstinacy, both in men and women,
    Whene’er their triumph pales, or star is tamed —
    And ‘twill perplex the casuist in morality
    To fix the due bounds of this dangerous quality.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    They are not Gods
    though they would like to be;
    they are only a human
    trying to fix up a human.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
