Famous quotes containing the word assign:

    Who would dare assign to art the sterile function of imitating nature?
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    And the friend not hesitates
    To assign just place and mates;
    Answers not in word or letter,
    Yet is understood the better;
    Is to his friend a looking-glass,
    Reflects his figure that doth pass.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Universal empire is the prerogative of a writer. His concerns are with all mankind, and though he cannot command their obedience, he can assign them their duty. The Republic of Letters is more ancient than monarchy, and of far higher character in the world than the vassal court of Britain.
    Thomas Paine (1737–1809)
