Famous quotes containing the words factor and/or exchange:

    You factor in racism as a reality and you keep moving.
    Jewell Jackson McCabe (b. 1945)

    My life is superficial, takes no root in the deep world; I ask, When shall I die, and be relieved of the responsibility of seeing a Universe which I do not use? I wish to exchange this flash-of-lightning faith for continuous daylight, this fever-glow for a benign climate.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
