Famous quotes containing the word defect:

    It is to be lamented that the principle of national has had very little nourishment in our country, and, instead, has given place to sectional or state partialities. What more promising method for remedying this defect than by uniting American women of every state and every section in a common effort for our whole country.
    Catherine E. Beecher (1800–1878)

    The child realizes to every man his own earliest remembrance, and so supplies a defect in our education, or enables us to live over the unconscious history with a sympathy so tender as to be almost personal experience.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A weak mind is the only defect out of our power to mend.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
