Famous quotes containing the word odd:

    Young people love what is interesting and odd, no matter how true or false it is. More mature minds love what is interesting and odd about truth. Fully mature intellects, finally, love truth, even when it appears plain and simple, boring to the ordinary person; for they have noticed that truth tends to reveal its highest wisdom in the guise of simplicity.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    It was odd how one found oneself making trivial conversation on important occasions. Perhaps it was because one could not say what was really in one’s mind.
    Barbara Pym (1913–1980)

    Holofernes. He is too picked, too spruce, too affected, too odd as it were, too peregrinate as I may call it.
    Sir Nathaniel. A most singular and choice epithet.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
