Famous quotes containing the word private:

    The world still wants its poet-priest, a reconciler, who shall not trifle with Shakspeare the player, nor shall grope in graves with Swedenborg the mourner; but who shall see, speak, and act, with equal inspiration. For knowledge will brighten the sunshine; right is more beautiful than private affection; and love is compatible with universal wisdom.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    To love one person with a private love is poor and miserable: to love all is glorious.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)

    It is an old adage, “All is fair in love as in war,” but I thought not of general laws, and only felt a private grievance.
    Jane Grey Swisshelm (1815–1884)
