Valued

Famous quotes containing the word valued:

    Men are apt to mistake, or at least to seem to mistake, their own talents, in hopes, perhaps, of misleading others to allow them that which they are conscious they do not possess. Thus lord Hardwicke valued himself more upon being a great minister of state, which he certainly was not, than upon being a great magistrate, which he certainly was.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Even the hatred
    in a man
    who’s valued for his learning
    is desirable,
    but I’m shamed
    by even love
    in a person
    who’s reviled by others.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)

    We say that every man is entitled to be valued by his best moment. We measure our friends so. We know, they have intervals of folly, whereof we take no heed, but wait the reappearings of the genius, which are sure and beautiful.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
