Famous quotes containing the words birth and/or giving:

    There is a certain class of people who prefer to say that their fathers came down in the world through their own follies than to boast that they rose in the world through their own industry and talents. It is the same shabby-genteel sentiment, the same vanity of birth which makes men prefer to believe that they are degenerated angels rather than elevated apes.
    W. Winwood Reade (1838–1875)

    To think well and to consent to obey someone giving good advice are the same thing.
    Herodotus (c. 484–424 B.C.)
