Famous quotes containing the words degrees of, freedom and/or degrees:

    Complete courage and absolute cowardice are extremes that very few men fall into. The vast middle space contains all the intermediate kinds and degrees of courage; and these differ as much from one another as men’s faces or their humors do.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    We have paid for nothing more dearly than for the little bit of human reason and the sense of freedom that currently constitutes our pride.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Pure Spirit, one hundred degrees proof—that’s a drink that only the most hardened contemplation-guzzlers indulge in. Bodhisattvas dilute their Nirvana with equal parts of love and work.
