Famous quotes containing the word expectation:

    I have no expectation that any man will read history aright who thinks that what has been done in a remote age, by men whose names have resounded far, has any deeper sense than what he is doing to-day.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    That even an apocalypse can be made to seem part of the ordinary horizon of expectation constitutes an unparalleled violence that is being done to our sense of reality, to our humanity.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    No expectation fails there,
    No pleasing habit ends,
    No man grows old, no girl grows cold,
    But friends walk by friends.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
