Famous quotes containing the words military and/or figures:

    There was somewhat military in his nature, not to be subdued, always manly and able, but rarely tender, as if he did not feel himself except in opposition. He wanted a fallacy to expose, a blunder to pillory, I may say required a little sense of victory, a roll of the drum, to call his powers into full exercise.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The human heart concerns us more than the poring into microscopes, and is larger than can be measured by the pompous figures of the astronomer.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
