Famous quotes containing the word unique:

    The unique eludes us; yet we remain faithful to the ideal of it; and in spite of sense and of our merely abstract thinking, it becomes for us the most real thing in the actual world, although for us it is the elusive goal of an infinite quest.
    Josiah Royce (1855–1916)

    The parent must not give in to his desire to try to create the child he would like to have, but rather help the child to develop—in his own good time—to the fullest, into what he wishes to be and can be, in line with his natural endowment and as the consequence of his unique life in history.
    Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

    No word, no thing,
    and either’s unique name.
    Paul Celan [Paul Antschel] (1920–1970)
