Famous quotes containing the word test:

    [17th-century] Puritans were the first modern parents. Like many of us, they looked on their treatment of children as a test of their own self-control. Their goal was not to simply to ensure the child’s duty to the family, but to help him or her make personal, individual commitments. They were the first authors to state that children must obey God rather than parents, in case of a clear conflict.
    C. John Sommerville (20th century)

    A decent provision for the poor is the true test of civilization.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    To test a modest man’s modesty do not investigate if he ignores applause, find out if he abides criticism.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
