Famous quotes containing the word stand:

    To stand up on the stage is to say to many people: “Look at me.” How can you do that without speaking the only truth you know? There is no such thing as an uncommitted actor.
    Judith Malina (b. 1926)

    Universal orthodoxy is enriched by every new discovery of truth: what at first appeared universal, by wishing to stand still, sooner or later becomes a sect.
    Edgar Quinet (1803–1875)

    When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
