Reached

Famous quotes containing the word reached:

    Knowledge has two extremes. The first is the pure natural ignorance in which all men find themselves at birth. The other extreme is that reached by great minds, who, having run through all that men can know, find they know nothing, and come back again to that same natural ignorance from which they set out; this is a learned ignorance which is conscious of itself.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    When I have reached the shady underground
    With but sad hope of coming up again,
    I shall implore your ghost to hover round
    And guide me to a land of lucky men....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    “And now this is the way in which the history of your former life has reached my ears!” As he said this he held out in his hand the fatal letter.
    Anthony Trollope (1815–1882)
