Famous quotes containing the word aid:

    Manners aim to facilitate life, to get rid of impediments, and bring the man pure to energize. They aid our dealing and conversation, as a railway aids travelling, by getting rid of all avoidable obstructions of the road, and leaving nothing to be conquered but pure space.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Be sure that you give the poor the aid they most need, though it be your example which leaves them far behind. If you give money, spend yourself with it, and do not merely abandon it to them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Illness is a clumsy attempt to arrive at health: we must come to nature’s aid with intellect.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
