Famous quotes containing the word grant:

    O Spirit,
    spark by spark,
    you instil fire
    through the sight
    to hearts you attack
    you grant rare happiness!
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    Grant me profits only, grant me the joy of profit made,
    and see to it that I enjoy cheating the buyer!
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)

    The rebel, unlike the revolutionary, does not attempt to undermine the social order as a whole. The rebel attacks the tyrant; the revolutionary attacks tyranny. I grant that there are rebels who regard all governments as tyrannical; nonetheless, it is abuses that they condemn, not power itself. Revolutionaries, on the other hand, are convinced that the evil does not lie in the excesses of the constituted order but in order itself. The difference, it seems to me, is considerable.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)
