Famous quotes containing the words centre and/or pompidou:

    Belief and love,—a believing love will relieve us of a vast load of care. O my brothers, God exists. There is a soul at the centre of nature, and over the will of every man, so that none of us can wrong the universe.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    There are three roads to ruin; women, gambling and technicians. The most pleasant is with women, the quickest is with gambling, but the surest is with technicians.
    —Georges Pompidou (1911–1974)
