Famous quotes containing the word achievement:

    ... very little achievement is required in order to pity another man’s shortcomings.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    It is not the literal past that rules us, save, possibly, in a biological sense. It is images of the past.... Each new historical era mirrors itself in the picture and active mythology of its past or of a past borrowed from other cultures. It tests its sense of identity, of regress or new achievement against that past.
    George Steiner (b. 1929)

    The quality of the will to power is, precisely, growth. Achievement is its cancellation. To be, the will to power must increase with each fulfillment, making the fulfillment only a step to a further one. The vaster the power gained the vaster the appetite for more.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)
