Famous quotes containing the words divine and/or word:

    There was never a man born so wise or good, but one or more companions came into the world with him, who delight in his faculty, and report it. I cannot see without awe, that no man thinks alone and no man acts alone, but the divine assessors who came up with him into life,—now under one disguise, now under another,—like a police in citizen’s clothes, walk with him, step for step, through all kingdoms of time.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Give the people a new word and they think they have a new fact.
    Willa Cather (1876–1947)
