Famous quotes containing the word fix:

    A strange and somewhat impassive physiognomy is often, perhaps, an advantage to an orator, or leader of any sort, because it helps to fix the eye and fascinate the mind.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    Come, fix upon me that accusing eye.
    I thirst for accusation. All that was sung.
    All that was said in Ireland is a lie
    Breed out of the contagion of the throng,
    Saving the rhyme rats hear before they die.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    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)
