Famous quotes containing the words search and/or partial:

    You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    And meanwhile we have gone on living,
    Living and partly living,
    Picking together the pieces,
    Gathering faggots at nightfall,
    Building a partial shelter,
    For sleeping and eating and drinking and laughter.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
