Famous quotes containing the words matches and/or test:

    That matches are made in heaven, may be, but my wife would have been just the wife for Peter the Great, or Peter Piper. How would she have set in order that huge littered empire of the one, and with indefatigable painstaking picked the peck of pickled peppers for the other.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    First follow Nature, and your judgment frame
    By her just standard, which is still the same;
    Unerring Nature, still divinely bright,
    One clear, unchanged, and universal light,
    Life, force, and beauty must to all impart,
    At once the source, and end, and test of art.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
