Famous quotes containing the word direct:

    In Europe life is histrionic and dramatized, and ... in America, except when it is trying to be European, it is direct and sincere.
    William Dean Howells (1837–1920)

    At the utmost, the active-minded young man should ask of his teacher only mastery of his tools. The young man himself, the subject of education, is a certain form of energy; the object to be gained is economy of his force; the training is partly the clearing away of obstacles, partly the direct application of effort. Once acquired, the tools and models may be thrown away.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    As for your friend, my prospective reader, I hope he ignores Fort Sumter, and “Old Abe,” and all that; for that is just the most fatal, and, indeed, the only fatal weapon you can direct against evil ever; for, as long as you know of it, you are particeps criminis. What business have you, if you are an “angel of light,” to be pondering over the deeds of darkness, reading the New York Herald, and the like.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
