Famous quotes containing the word world:

    The world has already learned that woman has other virtues than meekness, patience, humility and endurance. She possesses courage above all fear, and a will that knows no obstacles; and when these are called forth by some great emergency, false modesty is trampled in the dust, and spheres are scattered to the winds.
    A. Holley, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Lily, p. 38 (May 1852)
