Famous quotes containing the word portion:
“Reason is natural revelation, whereby the eternal father of light, and fountain of all knowledge, communicates to mankind that portion of truth which he has laid within the reach of their natural facilities: Revelation is natural reason enlarged by a new set of discoveries communicated by God immediately, which reason vouches the truth of, by the testimony and proofs it gives, that they come from God.”
—John Locke (16321704)
“That best portion of a good mans life;
His little, nameless, unremembered acts
Of kindness and of love.”

“Our kids will develop a work ethic only if we require them to pay a portion of the cost of some of the things they want. Theyll learn to defer gratification the moment we stop routinely pulling out our wallets. And theyll learn self-discipline only if we care enough to enforce reasonable limits.”
—Fred G. Gosman (20th century)
