Combined Joint Special

Famous quotes containing the words combined, joint and/or special:

    ... overconfidence in one’s own ability is the root of much evil. Vanity, egoism, is the deadliest of all characteristics. This vanity, combined with extreme ignorance of conditions the knowledge of which is the very A B C of business and of life, produces more shipwrecks and heartaches than any other part of our mental make-up.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)

    I conjure thee, and all the oaths which I
    And thou have sworn to seal joint constancy,
    Here I unswear, and overswear them thus,
    Thou shalt not love by ways so dangerous.
    Temper, O fair Love, love’s impetuous rage,
    Be my true Mistress still, not my feign’d Page;
    I’ll go, and, by thy kind leave, leave behind
    Thee, only worthy to nurse in my mind
    Thirst to come back;
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    A special kind of beauty exists which is born in language, of language, and for language.
    Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962)
