Famous quotes containing the word attainment:

    That which is required in order to the attainment of accurate conclusions respecting the essence of the Beautiful is nothing more than earnest, loving, and unselfish attention to our impressions of it.
    John Ruskin (1819–1900)

    Religion means goal and way, politics implies end and means. The political end is recognizable by the fact that it may be attained—in success—and its attainment is historically recorded. The religious goal remains, even in man’s highest experiences, that which simply provides direction on the mortal way; it never enters into historical consummation.
    Martin Buber (1878–1965)

    I do not pretend that language is science. It is ... an instrument for the attainment of science.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
