Famous quotes containing the words meaning and/or figurative:

    Of the three forms of pride, that is to say pride proper, vanity, and conceit, vanity is by far the most harmless, and conceit by far the most dangerous. The meaning of vanity is to think too much of our bodily advantages, whether real or unreal, over others; while the meaning of conceit is to believe we are cleverer, wiser, grander, and more important than we really are.
    John Cowper Powys (1872–1963)

    Church neglect
    And figurative use have pretty well
    Reduced him to a shadow of himself.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
