Famous quotes containing the word lofty:

    My grandmother stood among her kettles and ladles.
    Smiling, in faulty grammar,
    She praised my fortune and urged my lofty career.
    So to please her I studied—but I will remember always
    How she poured confusion out, how she cooled and labeled
    All the wild sauces of the brimming year.
    Mary Oliver (b. 1935)

    Not the intensity, but the durability of lofty feelings makes lofty men.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    For public opinion does not admit that lofty rapturous laughter is worthy to stand beside lofty lyrical emotion and that there is all the difference in the world between it and the antics of a clown at a fair.
    Nikolai Vasilyevich Gogol (1809–1852)
