Famous quotes containing the word statement:

    I think, therefore I am is the statement of an intellectual who underrates toothaches.
    Milan Kundera (b. 1929)

    Eloquence must be grounded on the plainest narrative. Afterwards, it may warm itself until it exhales symbols of every kind and color, speaks only through the most poetic forms; but first and last, it must still be at bottom a biblical statement of fact.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The parent is the strongest statement that the child hears regarding what it means to be alive and real. More than what we say or do, the way we are expresses what we think it means to be alive. So the articulate parent is less a telling than a listening individual.
    Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)
