Famous quotes containing the word conquest:

    The only fruit which even much living yields seems to be often only some trivial success,—the ability to do some slight thing better. We make conquest only of husks and shells for the most part,—at least apparently,—but sometimes these are cinnamon and spices, you know.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Have I in conquest stretched mine arm so far
    To be afeared to tell greybeards the truth?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    An educational method that shall have liberty as its basis must intervene to help the child to a conquest of liberty. That is to say, his training must be such as shall help him to diminish as much as possible the social bonds which limit his activity.
    Maria Montessori (1870–1952)
