Famous quotes containing the word ability:

    As parents it is well to be aware of the tendency to equate energetic activity with contest. Our children’s worth does not depend on their ability to trounce one another. And surely we can find ways of frolicking and being healthy and active together in some joyful, free way that is not an adversary relationship.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)

    The philosopher is like a man fasting in the midst of universal intoxication. He alone perceives the illusion of which all creatures are the willing playthings; he is less duped than his neighbor by his own nature. He judges more sanely, he sees things as they are. It is in this that his liberty consists—in the ability to see clearly and soberly, in the power of mental record.
    Henri-Frédéric Amiel (1821–1881)

    The only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.
    Robert Harling, U.S. writer, and Herbert Ross. Clairee Belcher (Olympia Dukakis)
