Narrow

Famous quotes containing the word narrow:

    When a village ceases to be a community, it becomes oppressive in its narrow conformity. So one becomes an individual and migrates to the city. There, finding others likeminded, one re- establishes a village community. Nowadays only New Yorkers are yokels.
    Paul Goodman (1911–1972)

    Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able.
    Bible: New Testament, Luke 13:24.

    Society gains nothing whilst a man, not himself renovated, attempts to renovate things around him; he has become tediously good in some particular but negligent or narrow in the rest; and hypocrisy and vanity are often the disgusting result.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
