Famous quotes containing the word condition:

    The condition that gives birth to a rule is not the same as the condition to which the rule gives birth.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Manners are of such great consequence to the novelist that any kind will do. Bad manners are better than no manners at all, and because we are losing our customary manners, we are probably overly conscious of them; this seems to be a condition that produces writers.
    Flannery O’Connor (1925–1964)

    I believe that every man who has ever been earnest to preserve his higher or poetic faculties in the best condition has been particularly inclined to abstain from animal food, and from much food of any kind.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
