Famous quotes containing the word connection:

    The connection between our knowledge and the abyss of being is still real, and the explication must be not less magnificent.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The virtue of art lies in detachment, in sequestering one object from the embarrassing variety. Until one thing comes out from the connection of things, there can be enjoyment, contemplation, but no thought.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
