Famous quotes containing the word master:

    So then learn to conquer your fear. This is the only art we have to master nowadays: to look at things without fear, and to fearlessly do right.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    Man was Cadaver’s masker, the harnessing mantle,
    Windily master of man was the rotten fathom,
    My ghost in his metal neptune
    Forged in man’s mineral.
    This was the god of beginning in the intricate seawhirl,
    And my images roared and rose on heaven’s hill.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    There appears to be but two grand master passions or movers in the human mind, namely, love and pride. And what constitutes the beauty or deformity of a man’s character is the choice he makes under which banner he determines to enlist himself. But there is a strong distinction between different degress in the same thing and a mixture of two contraries.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)
