Famous quotes containing the word peers:

    For believe me!—the secret to harvesting the greatest abundance and the greatest enjoyment from existence is this—living dangerously! Build your cities on the slopes of Vesuvius! Send your ships into uncharted seas! Live at war with your peers and yourselves! Be robbers and conquerors, so long as you cannot be rulers and possessors, you knowing ones! The time will soon be past when you could be content to live hidden in the forests like timid deer.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Passion crashes into obstacles; Reason peers around them.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Live without envy, spend your peaceful years
    Unknown to fame, and choose your peers for friends.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
