Famous quotes containing the word meet:

    If in the opinion of the Tsars authors were to be the servants of the state, in the opinion of the radical critics writers were to be the servants of the masses. The two lines of thought were bound to meet and join forces when at last, in our times, a new kind of regime the synthesis of a Hegelian triad, combined the idea of the masses with the idea of the state.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    Wonder at all he meets,
    Wonderer chiefly at himself,—
    Who can tell him what he is?
    Or how meet in human elf
    Coming and past eternities?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I sang of death but had I known
    The many deaths one must have died
    Before he came to meet his own!
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
