Famous quotes containing the word obtain:

    Let there be nothing untried; for nothing happens by itself, but men obtain all things by trying.
    Herodotus (c. 484–424 B.C.)

    There was once in man a true happiness of which there now remain to him only the mark and empty trace, which he in vain tries to fill from all his surroundings, seeking from things absent the help he does not obtain in things present.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    Who can measure the advantages that would result if the magnificent abilities of these women could be devoted to the needs of government, society and home, instead of being consumed in the struggle to obtain their birthright of individual freedom? Until this be gained we can never know, we can not even prophesy the capacity and power of women for the uplifting of humanity.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
