Famous quotes containing the word nearest:

    Men are not philosophers, but are rather very foolish children, who, by reason of their partiality, see everything in the most absurd manner, and are the victims at all times of the nearest object. There is even no philosopher who is a philosopher at all times. Our experience, our perception is conditioned by the need to acquire in parts and in succession, that is, with every truth a certain falsehood.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Yet do I fear thy nature,
    It is too full o’th’ milk of human kindness
    To catch the nearest way.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    This avidity alone, of acquiring goods and possessions for ourselves and our nearest friends, is insatiable, perpetual, universal, and directly destructive of society.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
