Famous quotes containing the word chain:

    The conclusion suggested by these arguments might be called the paradox of theorizing. It asserts that if the terms and the general principles of a scientific theory serve their purpose, i. e., if they establish the definite connections among observable phenomena, then they can be dispensed with since any chain of laws and interpretive statements establishing such a connection should then be replaceable by a law which directly links observational antecedents to observational consequents.
    —C.G. (Carl Gustav)

    It is the future that creates his present.
    All is an interminable chain of longing.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    From Nature’s chain whatever link you strike,
    Tenth or ten thousandth, breaks the chain alike.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)
