Famous quotes containing the word organ:

    But alas! I never could keep a promise. I do not blame myself for this weakness, because the fault must lie in my physical organization. It is likely that such a very liberal amount of space was given to the organ which enables me to make promises, that the organ which should enable me to keep them was crowded out. But I grieve not. I like no half-way things. I had rather have one faculty nobly developed than two faculties of mere ordinary capacity.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    The only power deserving the name is that of masses, and of governments while they make themselves the organ of the tendencies and instincts of masses.
    John Stuart Mill (1806–1873)

    What we commonly call man, the eating, drinking, planting, counting man, does not, as we know him, represent himself, but misrepresents himself. Him we do not respect, but the soul, whose organ he is, would he let it appear through his action, would make our knees bend.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
