Famous quotes containing the words higginson, henry and/or lee:

    It’s what you do, unthinking,
    That makes the quick tear start;
    The tear may be forgotten—
    But the hurt stays in the heart.
    —Ella Higginson (1862–1940)

    Next to being right in this world, the best of all things is to be clearly and definitely wrong, because you will come out somewhere. If you go buzzing about between right and wrong, vibrating and fluctuating, you come out nowhere; but if you are absolutely and thoroughly and persistently wrong, you must, some of these days, have the extreme good fortune of knocking your head against a fact, and that sets you all straight again.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    You see what you’ve done, don’t you?... You’ve committed the supreme blasphemy.
    —John Lee Mahin (1902–1984)
