Famous quotes containing the word transition:

    When I was going through my transition of being famous, I tried to ask God why was I here? what was my purpose? Surely, it wasn’t just to win three gold medals. There has to be more to this life than that.
    Wilma Rudolph (1940–1994)

    The god or hero of the sculptor is always represented in a transition from that which is representable to the senses, to that which is not.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    There is not any present moment that is unconnected with some future one. The life of every man is a continued chain of incidents, each link of which hangs upon the former. The transition from cause to effect, from event to event, is often carried on by secret steps, which our foresight cannot divine, and our sagacity is unable to trace. Evil may at some future period bring forth good; and good may bring forth evil, both equally unexpected.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)
