Famous quotes containing the word deep:

    But in our experience, man is cheap and friendship wants its deep sense. We affect to dwell with our friends in their absence, but we do not; when deed, word, or letter comes not, they let us go.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Personal size and mental sorrow have certainly no necessary proportions. A large bulky figure has a good a right to be in deep affliction, as the most graceful set of limbs in the world. But, fair or not fair, there are unbecoming conjunctions, which reason will pa tronize in vain,—which taste cannot tolerate,—which ridicule will seize.
    Jane Austen (1775–1817)

    Their very imagination was dead. When you can say that of a man, he has struck bottom, I reckon; there is no lower deep for him.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
