Famous quotes containing the word test:

    The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    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)

    He who has never failed somewhere, that man can not be great. Failure is the true test of greatness. And if it be said, that continual success is a proof that a man wisely knows his powers,—it is only to be added, that, in that case, he knows them to be small.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
