Famous quotes containing the word endeavour:

    Catholics are necessarily at war with this age. That we are not more conscious of the fact, that we so often endeavour to make an impossible peace with it—that is the tragedy. You cannot serve God and Mammon.
    Eric Gill (1882–1940)

    I often wish for the end of the wretched remnant of my life; and that wish is a rational one; but then the innate principle of self-preservation, wisely implanted in our natures, for obvious purposes, opposes that wish, and makes us endeavour to spin out our thread as long as we can, however decayed and rotten it may be.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    We endeavour more that men should speak of us, than how and what they speak, and it sufficeth us that our name run in men’s mouths, in what manner soever. It seemeth that to be known is in some sort to have life and continuance in other men’s keeping.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
