Famous quotes containing the word superior:

    We are superior to the joy we experience.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Even to this day it is easier than it ought to be for me to get a rise out of an American by telling him something about himself which is equally true about every human being on the face of the globe. He at once resents this as a disparagement and an assertion on my part that people in other parts of the globe are not like that, and are loftily superior to such weaknesses.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    But don’t despise error. When touched by genius, when led by chance, the most superior truth can come into being from even the most foolish error. The important inventions which have been brought about in every realm of science from false hypotheses number in the hundreds, indeed in the thousands.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)
