Famous quotes containing the word intervention:

    I was curious, I was avid to know only what I found more real than myself, that which allowed me to glimpse the thoughts of a great genius, or the force or grace of nature left to its own devices, without the intervention of man.

    Elaine Heffner (20th century)
