Standard Hour

Famous quotes containing the words standard and/or hour:

    There is a certain standard of grace and beauty which consists in a certain relation between our nature, such as it is, weak or strong, and the thing which pleases us. Whatever is formed according to this standard pleases us, be it house, song, discourse, verse, prose, woman, birds, rivers, trees, room, dress, and so on. Whatever is not made according to this standard displeases those who have good taste.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    When a woman wants a man and lusts after him, the lover need not bother to conjure up opportunities, for she will find more in an hour than we men could think of in a century.
    Pierre De Brantôme [Pierre De Bourdeille (c. 1530–1614)
