Famous quotes containing the word practice:

    By practice and conviction formed,
    With ancient stubbornness ingrained,
    Although her body clung and swarmed,
    My own identity remained.
    Yvor Winters (1900–1968)

    When any practice has become the fixed rule of the society in which we live, it is always wise to adhere to that rule, unless it call upon us to do something that is actually wrong. One should not offend the prejudices of the world, even if one is quite sure that they are prejudices.

    Michel Foucault (1926–1984)
