Famous quotes containing the words short and/or run:

    Our friendships hurry to short and poor conclusions, because we have made them a texture of wine and dreams, instead of the tough fibre of the human heart. The laws of friendship are austere and eternal, of one web with the laws of nature and of morals.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    People can only live with their equals, and not even with them; for in the long run they cannot tolerate that someone is their equal.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
