Addresses

Famous quotes containing the word addresses:

    Life is comic or pitiful as soon as the high ends of being fade out of sight, and man becomes near-sighted, and can only attend to what addresses the senses.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    If poetry should address itself to the same needs and aspirations, the same hopes and fears, to which the Bible addresses itself, it might rival it in distribution.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    The pleasures and the cares of the luckiest ambition, even of limitless power, are nothing next to the intimate happiness that tenderness and love give. I am man before being a prince, and when I have the good fortune to be in love, my mistress addresses a man and not a prince.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)
