Famous quotes containing the words notable, family and/or members:

    Every notable advance in technique or organization has to be paid for, and in most cases the debit is more or less equivalent to the credit. Except of course when it’s more than equivalent, as it has been with universal education, for example, or wireless, or these damned aeroplanes. In which case, of course, your progress is a step backwards and downwards.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    Nor does the family even move about together,
    But every son would have his motor cycle,
    And daughters ride away on casual pillions.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
    Bible: New Testament, 1 Corinthians 12:12.
