Famous quotes containing the word abstract:

    Delight at having understood a very abstract and obscure system leads most people to believe in the truth of what it demonstrates.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    If we take in our hand any volume; of divinity or school metaphysics, for instance; let us ask, Does it contain any abstract reasoning concerning quantity or number? No. Does it contain any experimental reasoning, concerning matter of fact and existence? No. Commit it then to flames: for it can contain nothing but sophistry and illusion.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    Oh, may the tide be soon enough at high
    To keep our abstract verse from being dry.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
