Famous quotes containing the word object:

    The hero is a feeling, a man seen
    As if the eye was an emotion,
    As if in seeing we saw our feeling
    In the object seen and saved that mystic
    Against the sight, the penetrating,
    Pure eye.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    If thinking is like perceiving, it must be either a process in which the soul is acted upon by what is capable of being thought, or a process different from but analogous to that. The thinking part of the soul must therefore be, while impassable, capable of receiving the form of an object; that is, must be potentially identical in character with its object without being the object. Mind must be related to what is thinkable, as sense is to what is sensible.
    Aristotle (384–322 B.C.)

    Confusion of sign and object is original sin coeval with the word.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
