Famous quotes containing the word means:

    Piety is not a goal but a means to attain through the purest peace of mind the highest culture.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Authority and power are two different things: power is the force by means of which you can oblige others to obey you. Authority is the right to direct and command, to be listened to or obeyed by others. Authority requests power. Power without authority is tyranny.
    Jacques Maritain (1882–1973)

    The idea that seeing life means going from place to place and doing a great variety of obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)
