Famous quotes containing the words school, high and/or heights:

    One non-revolutionary weekend is infinitely more bloody than a month of permanent revolution.
    Graffiti, School of Oriental Languages, London (1968)

    Nature never rhymes her children, nor makes two men alike. When we see a great man, we fancy a resemblance to some historical person, and predict the sequel of his character and fortune, a result which he is sure to disappoint. None will ever solve the problem of his character according to our prejudice, but only in his high unprecedented way.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Forgetting: that is a divine capacity. And whoever aspires to the heights and wants to fly must cast off much that is heavy and make himself light—I call it a divine capacity for lightness.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
