Famous quotes containing the word exception:

    There are two great rules in life, the one general and the other particular. The first is that every one can in the end get what he wants if he only tries. This is the general rule. The particular rule is that every individual is more or less of an exception to the general rule.
    Samuel Butler (1835–1902)

    There are those who would build the Temple,
    And those who prefer that the Temple should not be built.
    In the days of Nehemiah the Prophet
    There was no exception to the general rule.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    For a parent, it’s hard to recognize the significance of your work when you’re immersed in the mundane details. Few of us, as we run the bath water or spread the peanut butter on the bread, proclaim proudly, “I’m making my contribution to the future of the planet.” But with the exception of global hunger, few jobs in the world of paychecks and promotions compare in significance to the job of parent.
    Joyce Maynard (20th century)
