Approximate Dates Shown

Famous quotes containing the words approximate, dates and/or shown:

    All fashions are charming, or rather relatively charming, each one being a new striving, more or less well conceived, after beauty, an approximate statement of an ideal, the desire for which constantly teases the unsatisfied human mind.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    What is most interesting and valuable in it, however, is not the materials for the history of Pontiac, or Braddock, or the Northwest, which it furnishes; not the annals of the country, but the natural facts, or perennials, which are ever without date. When out of history the truth shall be extracted, it will have shed its dates like withered leaves.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If human beings were shown what they’re really like, they’d either kill one another as vermin, or hang themselves.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
