Famous quotes containing the words formula and/or season:
“Ideals possess the strange quality that if they were completely realized they would turn into nonsense. One could easily follow a commandment such as Thou shalt not kill to the point of dying of starvation; and I might establish the formula that for the proper functioning of the mesh of our ideals, as in the case of a strainer, the holes are just as important as the mesh.”
—Robert Musil (18801942)
“I like to compare the holiday season with the way a child listens to a favorite story. The pleasure is in the familiar way the story begins, the anticipation of familiar turns it takes, the familiar moments of suspense, and the familiar climax and ending.”
—Fred Rogers (20th century)
