Famous quotes containing the words life and/or early:

    His life was gentle, and the elements
    So mixed in him that nature might stand up
    And say to all the world “This was a man.”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Humanity has passed through a long history of one-sidedness and of a social condition that has always contained the potential of destruction, despite its creative achievements in technology. The great project of our time must be to open the other eye: to see all-sidedly and wholly, to heal and transcend the cleavage between humanity and nature that came with early wisdom.
    Murray Bookchin (b. 1941)
