Famous quotes containing the word run:

    All that could run or leap or swim
    Whether in wood, water or cloud,
    Acclaiming, proclaiming, declaiming Him.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Knowledge has two extremes. The first is the pure natural ignorance in which all men find themselves at birth. The other extreme is that reached by great minds, who, having run through all that men can know, find they know nothing, and come back again to that same natural ignorance from which they set out; this is a learned ignorance which is conscious of itself.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
