Affairs

Famous quotes containing the word affairs:

    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)

    To quarrel with the uncertainty that besets us in intellectual affairs would be about as reasonable as to object to live one’s life with due thought for the morrow because no man can be sure he will alive an hour hence.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    A scholar without going outside his door can know all the affairs of the world.
    Chinese proverb.
