Famous quotes containing the word prevents:

    What between the duties expected of one during one’s lifetime, and the duties exacted from one after one’s death, land has ceased to be either a profit or a pleasure. It gives one position, and prevents one from keeping it up. That’s all that can be said about land.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the word begin to move around. Stressed accents begin to invert. The word abandons its meaning like an overload which is too heavy and prevents dreaming. Then words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young. And the words wander away, looking in the nooks and crannies of vocabulary for new company, bad company.
    Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962)

    Nothing so much prevents our being natural as the desire to seem so.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
