Philosophy may raise us above grandeur, but nothing can elevate us above the ennui which accompanies it. (Quote by - Francoise d'Aubigne de Maintenon)

When great assurance accompanies a bad undertaking, such is often mistaken for confiding sincerity by the world at large. (Quote by - Juvenal)

Strange that the vanity which accompanies beauty - excusable, perhaps, when there is such great beauty, or at any rate understandable - should persist after the beauty was gone. (Quote by - Aristotle)

A person of mature years and ripe development, who is expecting nothing from literature but the corroboration and renewal of past ideas, may find satisfaction in a lucidity so complete as to occasion no imaginative excitement, but young and ambitious students are not content with it. They seek the excitement because they are capable of the growth that it accompanies. (Quote by - Charles Horton Cooley)

One may sometimes tell a lie, but the grimace that accompanies it tells the truth. (Quote by - Friedrich Nietzsche)

The viewer is instructed by the narrator about exactly what to look for; his comments reinforce the notion that what we are about to see will be funny. Studio laughter accompanies each episode as a way of continually defining the actions as funny, prompting the home viewer to experience the scene as amusing, rather than feeling sympathy or compassion for the victim's plight, or searching to understand it. (Quote by - Stanley Milgram)

Their own death accompanies the wound they inflict. (Quote by - Virgil)

There is a melancholy which accompanies all enthusiasm. (Quote by - Sir Anthony Ashley Cooper)

There is some reason to believe there is greater safety in this branch of medicine from modest, unassuming ignorance, than from a meddling presumption which frequently accompanies a little learning. (Quote by - Samuel Bard)

The art of being agreeable frequently miscarries through the ambition which accompanies it. Wit, learning, wisdom,--what can more effectually conduce to the profit and delight of society? Yet I am sensible that a man may be too invariably wise, learned, or witty to be agreeable; and I take the reason of this to be, that pleasure cannot be bestowed by the simple and unmixed exertion of any one faculty or accomplishment. (Quote by - Richard Cumberland)

A palsy may as well shake an oak, or a fever dry up a fountain, as either of them shake, dry up, or impair the delight of conscience. For it lies within, it centres in the heart, it grows into the very substance of the soul, so that it accompanies a man to his grave; he never outlives it. (Quote by - Bishop Robert South)

The greatest grossness sometimes accompanies the greatest refinement, as a natural relief. (Quote by - William Hazlitt)

Nothing is so envied as genius, nothing so hopeless of attainment by labor alone. Though labor always accompanies the greatest genius, without the intellectual gift labor alone will do little. (Quote by - B. R. Hayden)

Enjoyment is not a goal. It is a feeling that accompanies important ongoing activity. (Quote by - Paul Goodman)

Joy, rather than happiness, is the goal of life, for joy is the emotion which accompanies our fulfilling our natures as human beings. It is based on the experience of one's identity as a being of worth and dignity. (Quote by - Rollo May)

It is a commonly observed fact that the enslavement of women is invariably associated with a low type of social life, and that, conversely, her elevation towards an equality with man uniformly accompanies progress. (Quote by - Herbert Spencer)

I personally have learned a great deal during this period. Often, pain accompanies learning so I cannot say I have enjoyed this experience, and neither has anyone else at the College Board. (Quote by - Gaston Caperton)

It's not just this loss. This football team has suffered a lot of losses. At some point, we've got to break that trend. It's not just about losing games. It's about the mindset that accompanies that. We've got to break it. (Quote by - Tyrone Willingham)

When real nobleness accompanies that imaginary one of birth, the imaginary seems to mix with real, and becomes real too. (Quote by - Fulke Greville)

There is no virtue which does not rejoice a well-descended nature; there is a kind of I know not what congratulation in well-doing, that gives us an inward satisfaction, and a certain generous boldness that accompanies a good conscience. (Quote by - Michel Eyquem De Montaigne)

Anyone who has obeyed nature by transmitting a piece of gossip experiences the explosive relief that accompanies the satisfying of a primary need. (Quote by - Primo Levi)

The violence and obscenity are left unadulterated, as manifestation of the mystery and pain which ever accompanies the act of creation. (Quote by - Anais Nin)

He gives well and bountifully who accompanies the gift with a pleasing look. (Quote by - Proverb)

We cannot escape fear. We can only transform it into a companion that accompanies us on all our exciting adventures. Take a risk a day, one small or bold stroke that will make you feel great once you have done it. (Quote by - Susan Jeffers)

In a society of little economic development, universal inactivity accompanies universal poverty. You survive not by struggling against nature, or by increasing production, or by relentless labor; instead you survive by expending as little energy as possible, by striving constantly to achieve a state of immobility. (Quote by - Kapuscinski, Ryszard)
