Famous quotes containing the word independent:

    We are independent of the change we detect. The longer the lever, the less perceptible its motion. It is the slowest pulsation which is the most vital. The hero then will know how to wait, as well as to make haste. All good abides with him who waiteth wisely; we shall sooner overtake the dawn by remaining here than by hurrying over the hills of the west.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I’d like to come back as an independent woman who has more ambition than I have.
    Jenny Bird (b. c. 1937)

    Milton’s the prince of poets—so we say;
    A little heavy, but no less divine:
    An independent being in his day—
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
