Famous quotes containing the word level:

    I love thee to the level of everyday’s
    Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
    I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
    I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
    I love thee with the passion put to use
    In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

However, five-year-olds,... belie the promise of adult-like behavior with their child-like, impulsive actions.
    Dorothy H. Cohen (20th century)

    No man loses ever on a lower level by magnanimity on a higher.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
