Famous quotes containing the word merit:

    Our impartiality is kept for abstract merit and demerit, which none of us ever saw.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    Dug from the tomb of taste-refining time,
    Each form is exquisite, each block sublime.
    Or good, or bad,—disfigur’d, or deprav’d,—
    All art, is at its resurrection sav’d;
    All crown’d with glory in the critic’s heav’n,
    Each merit magnified, each fault forgiven.
    Martin Archer, Sir Shee (1769–1850)

    Certainly the best works, and of greatest merit for the public, have proceeded from the unmarried, or childless men.
    Francis Bacon (1561–1626)
