Rules

Famous quotes containing the word rules:

    The early Christian rules of life were not made to last, because the early Christians did not believe that the world itself was going to last.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    This is no argument against teaching manners to the young. On the contrary, it is a fine old tradition that ought to be resurrected from its current mothballs and put to work...In fact, children are much more comfortable when they know the guide rules for handling the social amenities. It’s no more fun for a child to be introduced to a strange adult and have no idea what to say or do than it is for a grownup to go to a formal dinner and have no idea what fork to use.
    Leontine Young (20th century)

    Ideas about life organize perception; names of emotions organize sensations; rules of syntax organize thought. But pain comes on its own.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
