Attended

Famous quotes containing the word attended:

    A new idea is rarely born like Venus attended by graces
    More commonly it’s modeled of baling wire and acne.
    More commonly it wheezes and tips over.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)

    Philosophy ... does not talk, but write, or, when it comes personally before an audience, lecture or read; and therefore it must be read to-morrow, or a thousand years hence. But the talker must naturally be attended to at once; he does not talk on without an audience; the winds do not long bear the sound of his voice.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    [T]he people seem to have deposited the monarchical and taken up the republican government with as much ease as would have attended their throwing off an old and putting on a new suit of clothes.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
