The doctrine of ratios and proportion is introduced by Euclid as a part of his system of geometry ; and the student seldom fails to remark, that in the treatises on algebra, the same subject is presented under a considerably different form; though he is usually quite unable to determine wherein the essential difference consists; and would probably find but few teachers who could precisely point out the distinction to him.
They fought because they were paid for it; they were not interested very much in the conquest of Greece. The Athenians on the other hand, fought for their freedom. They preferred to die rather than lose their freedom, and those who are prepared to die for any cause are seldom defeated.jawaharlal nehru
To Sherlock Holmes she is always the woman. I have seldom heard him mention her under any other name.In his eyes she eclipses and predominates the whole of her sex.Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
When the people contend for their liberty, they seldom get anything by their victory but new masters.Halifax, George Savile, 1st Marquis of
"The idea of the feudal system is that the people on the top take care of the needs of those on the bottom, but I have seldom seen it work that way," Wicked said."Yeah," I said, "it's like trickle-down economics; it only works if the people at the top are really good, decent people. The system is only as good as the people in power."laurell k. hamilton
In science if you know what you are doing you should not be doing it.In engineering if you do not know what you are doing you should not be doing it.Of course, you seldom, if ever, see the pure state.richard hamming
The demands of a free populace, too, are very seldom harmful to liberty, for they are due either to the populace being oppressed or to the suspicious that it is going to be oppressed... and, should these impressions be false, a remedy is provided in the public platform on which some man of standing can get up, appeal to the crowd, and show that it is mistaken. And though, as Tully remarks, the populace may be ignorant, it is capable of grasping the truth and readily yields when a man, worthy of confidence, lays the truth before it.
When the People contend for their Liberty, they seldom get any thing by their Victory but new Masters.savile, george, 1st marquess of halifax
A modest person seldom fails to gain the goodwill of those he converses with, because nobody envies a man who does not appear to be pleased with himself.richard steele

Men who live like Casanova are seldom interested in themselves; their egocentricity does not give them time for egotism.kenneth rexroth
' Man is free ; yet we must not suppose that he is at liberty to do everything he pleases, for he becomes a slave the moment he allows his actions to be ruled by passion . The man who has sufficient power over himself to wait until his nature has recovered its even balance is the truly wise man, but such beings are seldom met with.giacomo casanova
By being seldom seen, I could not stir But like a comet I was wonder'd at.
You have in American history one of the great captains of all times. It might be said of him, as it was of William the Silent, that he seldom won a battle but he never lost a campaign.
O, but they say the tongues of dying men Enforce attention like deep harmony: Where words are scarce, they are seldom spent in vain, For they breathe truth that breathe their words in pain. He that no more must say is listen'd more.william shakespeare
Most of us seldom take the trouble to think. It is a troublesome and fatiguing process and often leads to uncomfortable conclusions. But crises and deadlocks when they occur have at least this advantage, that they force us to think.
Women...sacrificing to lasciviousness the parental affection...either destroy the embryo in the womb, or cast if off when born. Nature in every thing demands respect, and those who violate her laws seldom violate them with impunity.
seldom is it given to one generation to have such an opportunity to rise again, but now before you is that opportunity in televisiona larger, richer, broader opportunity than ever existed in radio.David Sarnoff
