Pointed

Famous quotes containing the word pointed:

    In all pointed sentences, some degree of accuracy must be sacrificed to conciseness.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Be sure that it is not you that is mortal, but only your body. For that man whom your outward form reveals is not yourself; the spirit is the true self, not that physical figure which can be pointed out by your finger.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)

    “Courage!” he said, and pointed toward the land,
    “This mounting wave will roll us shoreward soon.”
    In the afternoon they came unto a land
    In which it seemed always afternoon.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
