Famous quotes containing the word narrow:

    I kiss my wailing child and press it to my breast,
    And hear the narrow graves calling my child and me.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Society gains nothing whilst a man, not himself renovated, attempts to renovate things around him; he has become tediously good in some particular but negligent or narrow in the rest; and hypocrisy and vanity are often the disgusting result.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    His virtues walked their narrow round,
    Nor made a pause, nor left a void;
    And sure the Eternal Master found
    The single talent well employed.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
