Quote of the Day
An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Because I have a girlfriend, I try and take the straight and narrow path, which is good because it prevents VD.
I think that intelligence is such a narrow branch of the tree of life - this branch of primates we call humans. No other animal, by our definition, can be considered intelligent. So intelligence can't be all that important for survival, because there are so many animals that don't have what we call intelligence, and they're surviving just fine.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Quick condemnation of all that is not ours, of views with which we disagree, of ideas that do not attract us, is the sign of a narrow mind, of an uncultivated intelligence. Bigotry is always ignorant, and the wise boy, who will become the wise man, tries to understand and to see the truth in ideas with which he does not agree.
Independence did not mean chauvinism and narrow nationalism.
Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.
Henry David Thoreau
Madrid is enjoyed most from the ground, exploring your way through its narrow streets that always lead to some intriguing park, market, tapas bar or street performer. Each night we'd leave our hotel to begin a new adventure in Madrid and nine out of 10 times, we'd walk through the Plaza Mayor.
An expert is someone who knows some of the worst mistakes, which can be made, in a very narrow field.
There is in true beauty, as in courage, something which narrow souls cannot dare to admire.

Charles Horton Cooley
Tribulation will not hurt you, unless as it too often does; it hardens you and makes you sour, narrow and skeptical.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
In Iran, there is no freedom of the press, no freedom of speech, no independent judiciary, no free elections. There is no freedom of religion - not even for Shiites, who are forced by Iran's theocracy to adhere to one narrow set of official rules.
It is impossible for any number which is a power greater than the second to be written as a sum of two like powers. I have a truly marvelous demonstration of this proposition which this margin is too narrow to contain.
Pierre de Fermat
But it is impossible to divide a cube into two cubes, or a fourth power into fourth powers, or generally any power beyond the square into like powers; of this I have found a remarkable demonstration. This margin is too narrow to contain it.
Pierre de Fermat
Far from being the basis of the good society, the family, with its narrow privacy and tawdry secrets, is the source of all our discontents.
An expert is a man who has made all the mistakes which can be made, in a narrow field.
I think in the end, when you're famous, people like to narrow you down to a few personality traits. I think I've just become this ambitious, say-whatever's-on-her-mind, intimidating person. And that's part of my personality, but it's certainly not anywhere near the whole thing.
A strong accountability system needs to broaden, not narrow, the curriculum. That cannot happen if you only have accountability without adequate school funding.

The leader must aim high, see big, judge widely, thus setting himself apart form the ordinary people who debate in narrow confines.
Charles de Gaulle

Republicans are men of narrow vision, who are afraid of the future.
American men, as a group, seem to be interested in only two things, money and breasts. It seems a very narrow outlook.
Narrow your life down to this moment. Your life situation may be full of problems - most life situations are - but find out if you have a problem at this moment. Do you have a problem now?
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
