Famous quotes containing the words line and/or standard:

    Somewhere along the line of development we discover who we really are, and then we make our real decision for which we are responsible. Make that decision primarily for yourself because you can never really live anyone else’s life not even your child’s. The influence you exert is through your own life and what you become yourself.
    Eleanor Roosevelt (1884–1962)

    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
