Famous quotes containing the word existing:

    A fierce unrest seethes at the core,
    Of all existing things:,
    It was the eager wish to soar,
    That gave the gods their wings.
    Don Marquis (1878–1937)

    The mere idea of marriage, as a strong possibility, if not always nowadays a reasonable likelihood, existing to weaken the will by distracting its straight aim in the life of practically every young girl, is the simple secret of their confessed inferiority in men’s pursuits and professions to-day.
    William Bolitho (1890–1930)

This goal has had the most distorting impact on five-year-olds. It causes kindergartens to be merely the handmaidens of first grade.... Kindergarten teachers cannot look at their own children and plan for their present needs as five-year-olds.
