### Famous quotes containing the word categorical:

“We do the same thing to parents that we do to children. We insist that they are some kind of *categorical* abstraction because they produced a child. They were people before that, and they’re still people in all other areas of their lives. But when it comes to the state of parenthood they are abruptly heir to a whole collection of virtues and feelings that are assigned to them with a fine arbitrary disregard for individuality.”

—Leontine Young (20th century)
