Suitable

Famous quotes containing the word suitable:

    I am absent altogether too much to be a suitable instructor for a law-student. When a man has reached the age that Mr. Widner has, and has already been doing for himself, my judgment is, that he reads the books for himself without an instructor. That is precisely the way I came to the law.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    So far as I am concerned, dear, I promise you that very soon I’ll settle down again and write another long three-volume novel, suitable for the most genteel of young women.
    —Jan Read. Robert Day. James Rankin (Boris Karloff)

    No one thinks anything silly is suitable when they are an adolescent. Such an enormous share of their own behavior is silly that they lose all proper perspective on silliness, like a baker who is nauseated by the sight of his own eclairs. This provides another good argument for the emerging theory that the best use of cryogenics is to freeze all human beings when they are between the ages of twelve and nineteen.
    Anna Quindlen (20th century)
