Famous quotes containing the words convention, placing and/or seamen:

    No convention gets to be a convention at all except by grace of a lot of clever and powerful people first inventing it, and then imposing it on others. You can be pretty sure, if you are strictly conventional, that you are following genius—a long way off. And unless you are a genius yourself, that is a good thing to do.
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    I hate set dissertations,—and above all things in the world, ‘tis one of the silliest things in one of them, to darken your hypothesis by placing a number of tall, opake words, one before another, in a right line, betwixt your own and your readers conception.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    Columbus’s doom-burdened caravels
    Slant to the shore, and all their seamen land.
    Sir John Collings Squire (1884–1958)
