Famous quotes containing the word wastes:

    Thus he wastes half his days, and his hours without number,
    Isaac Watts (1674–1748)

    It is a mighty error to suppose that none but violent and strong passions, such as love and ambition, are able to vanquish the rest. Even idleness, as feeble and languishing as it is, sometimes reigns over them; it usurps the throne and sits paramount over all the designs and actions of our lives, and imperceptibly wastes and destroys all our passions and all our virtues.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Manners have been somewhat cynically defined to be a contrivance of wise men to keep fools at a distance. Fashion is shrewd to detect those who do not belong to her train, and seldom wastes her attentions.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
