Famous quotes containing the word plan:

    The nonconformist and the rebel say all manner of unanswerable things against the existing republic, but discover to our sense no plan of house or state of their own.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Who is the happy Warrior? Who is he
    That every man in arms should wish to be?
    It is the generous spirit, who, when brought
    Among the tasks of real life, hath wrought
    Upon the plan that pleased his boyish thought:
    Whose high endeavors are an inward light
    That makes the path before him always bright:
    Who, with a natural instinct to discern
    What knowledge can perform, is diligent to learn;
    And in himself posses his own desire;
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    I plan to be reincarnated as a dolphin.
    Margo Godfrey Oberg (b. c. 1955)
