Famous quotes containing the word quotes:

    I quote another man’s saying; unluckily, that other withdraws himself in the same way, and quotes me.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A great man quotes bravely, and will not draw on his invention when his memory serves him with a word as good. What he quotes, he fills with his own voice and humour, and the whole cyclopedia of his table-talk is presently believed to be his own.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Man is timid and apologetic; he is no longer upright; he dares not say “I think,” “I am,” but quotes some saint or sage.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
