Famous quotes containing the word faculty:

    Rhetoric may be defined as the faculty of observing in any given case the available means of persuasion.
    Aristotle (384–323 B.C.)

    Reason is man’s faculty for grasping the world by thought, in contradiction to intelligence, which is man’s ability to manipulate the world with the help of thought. Reason is man’s instrument for arriving at the truth, intelligence is man’s instrument for manipulating the world more successfully; the former is essentially human, the latter belongs to the animal part of man.
    Erich Fromm (1900–1980)

    Where is he who seeing a thousand men useless and unhappy, and making the whole region forlorn by their inaction, and conscious himself of possessing the faculty they want, does not hear his call to go and be their king?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
