Famous quotes containing the words act and/or constitution:

    I look on trade and every mechanical craft as education also. But let me discriminate what is precious herein. There is in each of these works an act of invention, an intellectual step, or short series of steps taken; that act or step is the spiritual act; all the rest is mere repetition of the same a thousand times.

    But in every constitution some large degree of animal vigor is necessary as material foundation for the higher qualities of the art.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
