Famous quotes containing the words grammar, schools and/or act:

    All the facts of nature are nouns of the intellect, and make the grammar of the eternal language. Every word has a double, treble or centuple use and meaning.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The schools begin with what they call the elements, and where do they end?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Pretension may sit still, but cannot act. Pretension never feigned an act of real greatness. Pretension never wrote an Iliad, nor drove back Xerxes, nor christianized the world, nor abolished slavery.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
