Famous quotes containing the word stand:

    Mr. Alcott seems to have sat down for the winter. He has got Plato and other books to read. He is as large-featured and hospitable to traveling thoughts and thinkers as ever; but with the same Connecticut philosophy as ever, mingled with what is better. If he would only stand upright and toe the line!—though he were to put off several degrees of largeness, and put on a considerable degree of littleness. After all, I think we must call him particularly your man.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Perfect Scepticisme ... is a disease incurable, and a thing rather to be pitied or laughed at, then seriously opposed. For when a man is so fugitive and unsettled that he will not stand to the verdict of his own Faculties, one can no more fasten any thing upon him, than he can write in the water, or tye knots in the wind.
    Henry More (1614–1687)

    But there are no fractions, the world is an integer
    Like us, and like us it can neither stand wholly apart nor disappear.
    When one is young it seems like a very strange and safe place,
    But now that I have changed it feels merely odd, cold
    And full of interest.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
