Famous quotes containing the word constitution:

    But in every constitution some large degree of animal vigor is necessary as material foundation for the higher qualities of the art.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Your Constitution is all sail and no anchor.
    Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800–1859)

    What we learn for the sake of knowing, we hold; what we learn for the sake of accomplishing some ulterior end, we forget as soon as that end has been gained. This, too, is automatic action in the constitution of the mind itself, and it is fortunate and merciful that it is so, for otherwise our minds would be soon only rubbish-rooms.
    Anna C. Brackett (1836–1911)
