Famous quotes containing the word bright:

    There is no living, none,
    If Bertram be away. ‘Twere all one
    That I should love a bright particular star
    And think to wed it, he is so above me.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Look not into the sun! Even the moon is too bright for your nocturnal eyes!
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    School-days, I believe, are the unhappiest in the whole span of human existence. They are full of dull, unintelligible tasks, new and unpleasant ordinances, brutal violations of common sense and common decency. It doesn’t take a reasonably bright boy long to discover that most of what is rammed into him is nonsense, and that no one really cares very much whether he learns it or not.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
