Famous quotes containing the word marks:

    if we are to win
    that title I want to see how.
    But I don’t want to see
    any marks when you’re dressed,
    he said. He said, Now.
    Gary Gildner (b. 1938)

    [Children] do not yet lie to themselves and therefore have not entered upon that important tacit agreement which marks admission into the adult world, to wit, that I will respect your lies if you will agree to let mine alone. That unwritten contract is one of the clear dividing lines between the world of childhood and the world of adulthood.
    Leontine Young (20th century)

    The legislator must be in advance of his age.
    Across the mind of the statesman flash ever and anon the brilliant, though partial, intimations of future events.... Something which is more than fore-sight and less than prophetic knowledge marks the statesman a peculiar being among his contemporaries.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)
