Famous quotes containing the word train:

    Misfortunes leave wounds which bleed drop by drop even in sleep; thus little by little they train man by force and dispose him to wisdom in spite of himself. Man must learn to think of himself as a limited and dependent being; and only suffering teaches him this.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    I would love to meet a philosopher like Nietzsche on a train or boat and to talk with him all night. Incidentally, I don’t consider his philosophy long-lived. It is not so much persuasive as full of bravura.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)

    ... there isn’t a train I wouldn’t take,
    No matter where it’s going.
    Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)
