Open

Famous quotes containing the word open:

    Every woman who vacates a place in the teachers’ ranks and enters an unusual line of work, does two excellent things: she makes room for someone waiting for a place and helps to open a new vocation for herself and other women.
    Frances E. Willard (1839–1898)

    Each man has his own vocation. The talent is the call. There is one direction in which all space is open to him. He has faculties silently inviting him thither to endless exertion. He is like a ship in the river; he runs against obstructions on every side but one; on that side all obstruction is taken away, and he sweeps serenely over a deepening channel into an infinite sea.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I not deny
    The jury, passing on the prisoner’s life,
    May in the sworn twelve have a thief or two
    Guiltier than him they try. What’s open made to justice,
    That justice seizes.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
