Famous quotes containing the word short:

    Friendship is the perfection of love, and superior to love; it is love purified, exalted, proved by experience and a consent of minds. Love, Madam, may, and love does, often stop short of friendship.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)

    For one swallow does not make a summer, nor does one day; and so too one day, or a short time, does not make a man blessed and happy.
    Aristotle (384–322 B.C.)

    There was never a century nor a country that was short of experts who knew the Deity’s mind and were willing to reveal it.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
