Famous quotes containing the word degree:

    In all pointed sentences, some degree of accuracy must be sacrificed to conciseness.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    The eloquence of one stimulates all the rest, some up to the speaking-point, and all others to a degree that makes them good receivers and conductors, and they avenge themselves for their enforced silence by increased loquacity on their return.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Take but degree away, untune that string,
    And hark what discord follows!
    ...
    Force should be right, or, rather, right and wrong—
    Between whose endless jar justice resides—
    Should lose their names, and so should justice too.
    Then everything includes itself in power,
    Power into will, will into appetite;
    And appetite, an universal wolf,
    So doubly seconded with will and power,
    Must make perforce an universal prey,
    And last eat up himself.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
