We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life, is rounded with a sleep. The Tempest
— William Shakespeare

No one is fit to judge a book until he has rounded Cape Horn in a sailing vessel, until he has bumped into two or three icebergs, until he has been lost in the sands of the desert, until he has spent a few years in the House of the Dead.
Van Wyck Brooks rounded quote

One of the great undiscovered joys of life comes from doing everything one attempts to the best of one's ability. There is a special sense of satisfaction, a pride in surveying such a work, a work which is rounded, full, exact, complete in its parts, which the superficial person who leaves his or her work in a slovenly, slipshod, half-finished condition, can never know. It is this conscientious completeness which turns any work into art. The smallest task, well done, becomes a miracle of achievement.
— Og Mandino

Come to me in the silence of the night, Come to me in the speaking silence of a dream.Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright as sunlight on a stream.Come back in tears,O memory, hope, love of finished years.
— Christina Rossetti

Science is nothing but developed perception, interpreted intent, common sense rounded out and minutely articulated.
— rounded quotation by George Santayana
