Famous quotes containing the word terms:

    They were pipes of pagan mirth,
    And the world had found new terms of worth.
    He laid him down on the sunburned earth
    And raveled a flower and looked away.
    Play? Play? What should he play?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    It is surely a matter of common observation that a man who knows no one thing intimately has no views worth hearing on things in general. The farmer philosophizes in terms of crops, soils, markets, and implements, the mechanic generalizes his experiences of wood and iron, the seaman reaches similar conclusions by his own special road; and if the scholar keeps pace with these it must be by an equally virile productivity.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    Picture the prince, such as most of them are today: a man ignorant of the law, well-nigh an enemy to his people’s advantage, while intent on his personal convenience, a dedicated voluptuary, a hater of learning, freedom and truth, without a thought for the interests of his country, and measuring everything in terms of his own profit and desires.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)
