Directed

Famous quotes containing the word directed:

    At present the globe goes with a shattered constitution in its orbit.... No doubt the simple powers of nature, properly directed by man, would make it healthy and a paradise; as the laws of man’s own constitution but wait to be obeyed, to restore him to health and happiness.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    [W]hat I mean by love ... is this. A sympathetic liking—excited by fancy, directed by judgment—and to which is joined also a most sincere desire of the good and happiness of its object.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    It does not follow, because our difficulties are stupendous, because there are some souls timorous enough to doubt the validity and effectiveness of our ideals and our system, that we must turn to a state controlled or state directed social or economic system in order to cure our troubles.
    Herbert Hoover (1874–1964)
