Famous quotes containing the word test:

    The test of a man’s or woman’s breeding is how they behave in a quarrel. Anybody can behave well when things are going smoothly.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    Our decision about energy will test the character of the American people and the ability of the President and the Congress to govern this nation. This difficult effort will be the “moral equivalent of war,” except that we will be uniting our efforts to build and not to destroy.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    First follow Nature, and your judgment frame
    By her just standard, which is still the same;
    Unerring Nature, still divinely bright,
    One clear, unchanged, and universal light,
    Life, force, and beauty must to all impart,
    At once the source, and end, and test of art.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
