Famous quotes containing the words james and/or dickey:

    Philosophy is at once the most sublime and the most trivial of human pursuits. It works in the minutest crannies and it opens out the widest vistas. It ‘bakes no bread’, as has been said, but it can inspire our souls with courage.
    —William James (1842–1910)

    I am not afraid for my father—
    Look! He is grinning; he is not
    Afraid for my life, either,
    —James Dickey (b. 1923)
