Famous quotes containing the word test:

    The test of a given phrase would be: Is it worthy to be immortal? To “make a beeline” for something. That’s worthy of being immortal and is immortal in English idiom. “I guess I’ll split” is not going to be immortal and is excludable, therefore excluded.
    Robert Fitzgerald (1910–1985)

    We do not quite say that the new is more valuable because it fits in; but its fitting in is a test of its value—a test, it is true, which can only be slowly and cautiously applied, for we are none of us infallible judges of conformity.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    This, then, is the test we must set for ourselves; not to march alone but to march in such a way that others will wish to join us.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)
