Famous quotes containing the word show:

    The true picture of life as it is, if it could be adequately painted, would show men what they are, and how they might rise, not, indeed to perfection, but one step first, and then another on the ladder.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)

    I might show facts as plain as day:
    But, since your eyes are blind, you’d say,
    “Where? What?” and turn away.
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    Quarrel not at all. No man resolved to make the most of himself, can spare time for personal contention. Still less can he afford to take all the consequences, including the vitiating of his temper, and the loss of self-control. Yield larger things to which you can show no more than equal right; and yield lesser ones, though clearly your own. Better give your path to a dog, than be bitten by him in contesting for the right. Even killing the dog would not cure the bite.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
