Highest

Famous quotes containing the word highest:

    I do not believe in lawyers, in that mode of attacking or defending a man, because you descend to meet the judge on his own ground, and, in cases of the highest importance, it is of no consequence whether a man breaks a human law or not. Let lawyers decide trivial cases.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Envy like fire always makes for the highest points.
    Titus Livius (Livy)

    The highest proof of civility is that the whole public action of the State is directed on securing the greatest good of the greatest number.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
