Famous quotes containing the word meritorious:

    Arrogance on the part of the meritorious is even more offensive to us than the arrogance of those without merit: for merit itself is offensive.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    We can most safely achieve truly universal tolerance when we respect that which is characteristic in the individual and in nations, clinging, though, to the conviction that the truly meritorious is unique by belonging to all of mankind.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
