Famous quotes containing the word difficulty:

    Because they did not see merit where they should have seen it, people, to express their regret, will go and leave a lot of money to the very people who will be the first to throw stones at the next person who has anything to say and finds a difficulty in getting a hearing.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    In spite of all their kind some elements of worth
    With difficulty persist here and there on earth.
    Hugh MacDiarmid (1892–1978)

    Our young people are diseased with the theological problems of original sin, origin of evil, predestination, and the like. These never presented a practical difficulty to any man,—never darkened across any man’s road, who did not go out of his way to seek them. These are the soul’s mumps, and measles, and whooping- coughs, and those who have not caught them cannot describe their health or prescribe a cure. A simple mind will not know these enemies.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
