Famous quotes containing the word reckon:

    Jupiter, not wanting man’s life to be wholly gloomy and grim, has bestowed far more passion than reason—you could reckon the ration as twenty-four to one. Moreover, he confined reason to a cramped corner of the head and left all the rest of the body to the passions.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)

    See, in the Navy, during the war, I got used to the idea that something might happen to me, I might not make it. Well, I also got used to the idea that my wife and children were safe at home, they’d be all right no matter what. But what I didn’t reckon with was that in this, this kind of a monstrous war, something might happen to them, and not to me. Well it did, and I can’t, I can’t cope with it.
    John Paxton (1911–1985)

    There are people who indulge themselves in a sort of lying, which they reckon innocent, and which in one sense is so; for it hurts nobody but themselves. This sort of lying is the spurious offspring of vanity, begotten upon folly.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
