A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on danger and feeling

Nothing is more dangerous in wartime than to live in the temperamental atmosphere of a Gallup Poll, always feeling one's pulse and taking one's temperature. Dr. George H. Gallup founded his Institute of Public Opinion in England in 1936.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on feeling and mathematics

I had a feeling once about Mathematics - that I saw it all. Depth beyond depth was revealed to me - the Byss and Abyss. I saw - as one might see the transit of Venus or even the Lord Mayor's Show - a quantity passing through infinity and changing its sign from plus to minus. I saw exactly why it happened and why the tergiversation was inevitable - but it was after dinner and I let it go.

A Quote by William Wordsworth on charm, feeling, interest, love, mountains, needs, passion, and thought

The sounding cataract Haunted me like a passion; the tall rock, The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood, An appetite; a feeling and a love that had no need of a remoter charm by thought supplied, nor any interest Unborrowed from the eye.

A Quote by William Wordsworth on charm, feeling, interest, love, mountains, needs, and passion

The sounding cataract Haunted me like a passion; the tall rock, The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood, Their colours and their forms, were then to me An appetite,-a feeling and a love, That had no need of a remoter charm By thoughts supplied, nor any interest Unborrowed from the eye.

A Quote by William Pitt, "the Elder Pitt on america, death, feeling, liberty, people, rest, and slavery

I rejoice that America has resisted. Three millions of people, so dead to all the feelings of liberty, as voluntary to submit to be slaves, would have been fit instruments to make slaves of the rest.

A Quote by William George Jordan on feeling, government, individuality, strength, words, and world

Every man reigns a king over the kingdom of-self. He wears the crown of individuality that no hands but his can ever remove. He should not only reign, but-rule. His individuality is his true self, his self victorious. His thoughts, his words, his acts, his feelings, his aims and his powers are his subjects. With gentle, firm strength he must command them or, they will finally take from the feeble fingers the reigns of government and rule in his stead. Man must first be true to himself or he will be false to all the world.

William Jordan
