Points

Famous quotes containing the word points:

    The two great points of difference between a democracy and a republic are: first, the delegation of the government, in the latter, to a small number of citizens elected by the rest; secondly, the greater number of citizens and greater sphere of country over which the latter may be extended.
    James Madison (1751–1836)

    Only that which points the human spirit beyond its own limitations into what is universally human gives the individual strength superior to his own. Only in suprahuman demands which can hardly be fulfilled do human beings and peoples feel their true and sacred measure.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    We only part to meet again.
    Change, as ye list, ye winds: my heart shall be
    The faithful compass that still points to thee.
    John Gay (1685–1732)
