Famous quotes containing the words electric and/or general:

    Wisdom is like electricity. There is no permanently wise man, but men capable of wisdom, who, being put into certain company, or other favorable conditions, become wise for a short time, as glasses rubbed acquire electric power for a while.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    He who never sacrificed a present to a future good or a personal to a general one can speak of happiness only as the blind do of colors.
    Olympia Brown (1835–1900)
