Famous quotes containing the word authentic:

    The reason why any one refuses his assent to your opinion, or his aid to your benevolent design, is in you: he refuses to accept you as a bringer of truth, because, though you think you have it, he feels that you have it not. You have not given him the authentic sign.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
