Famous quotes containing the word private:

    The private citizen, beset by partisan appeals for the loan of his Public Opinion, will soon see, perhaps, that these appeals are not a compliment to his intelligence, but an imposition on his good nature and an insult to his sense of evidence.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)

    Always get rid of theory private object in this way: assume that it constantly changes, but that you do not notice the change because your memory constantly deceives you.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)

    All the events which make the annals of the nations are but the shadows of our private experiences.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
