Points

Famous quotes containing the word points:

    Wi’ joy unfeigned brothers and sisters meet,
    An’ each for other’s weelfare kindly spiers:

    Each tells the uncos that he sees or hears;
    The parents, partial, eye their hopeful years;
    Anticipation forward points the view:
    Robert Burns (1759–1796)

    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)

    PLAIN SUPERFICIALITY is the character of a speech, in which any two points being taken, the speaker is found to lie wholly with regard to those two points.
