Famous quotes containing the words figures and/or action:

    The human heart concerns us more than the poring into microscopes, and is larger than can be measured by the pompous figures of the astronomer.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We call the intention good which is right in itself, but the action is good, not because it contains within it some good, but because it issues from a good intention. The same act may be done by the same man at different times. According to the diversity of his intention, however, this act may be at one time good, at another bad.
    Peter Abelard (1079–1142)
