Famous quotes containing the word method:

    Women stand related to beautiful nature around us, and the enamoured youth mixes their form with moon and stars, with woods and waters, and the pomp of summer. They heal us of awkwardness by their words and looks. We observe their intellectual influence on the most serious student. They refine and clear his mind: teach him to put a pleasing method into what is dry and difficult.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Too poor for a bribe, and too proud to importune,
    He had not the method of making a fortune.
    Thomas Gray (1716–1771)

    The good husband finds method as efficient in the packing of fire-wood in a shed, or in the harvesting of fruits in the cellar, as in Peninsular campaigns or the files of the Department of State.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
