Famous quotes containing the word direction:

    The learned and the studious of thought have no monopoly of wisdom. Their violence of direction in some degree disqualifies them to think truly.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Exaggeration is in the course of things. Nature sends no creature, no man into the world, without adding a small excess of his proper quality. Given the planet, it is still necessary to add the impulse; so, to every creature nature added a little violence of direction in its proper path, a shove to put it on its way; in every instance, a slight generosity, a drop too much.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Our vices always lie in the direction of our virtues, and in their best estate are but plausible imitations of the latter.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
