Famous quotes containing the words season, final and/or regular:

    Let us have a good many maples and hickories and scarlet oaks, then, I say. Blaze away! Shall that dirty roll of bunting in the gun-house be all the colors a village can display? A village is not complete, unless it have these trees to mark the season in it. They are important, like the town clock. A village that has them not will not be found to work well. It has a screw loose, an essential part is wanting.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Parents can only give [children] good advice or put them on their right paths, but the final forming of a person lies in their own hands.
    Anne Frank (20th century)

    “I couldn’t afford to learn it,” said the Mock Turtle with a sigh. “I only took the regular course.”
    “What was that?” inquired Alice.
    “Reeling and Writhing, of course, to begin with,” the Mock Turtle replied; “and then the different branches of Arithmetic—Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision.”
    “I never heard of ‘Uglification,’” Alice ventured to say.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
