### Famous quotes containing the word partial:

“Both the man of science and the man of art live always at the edge of mystery, surrounded by it. Both, as a measure of their creation, have always had to do with the harmonization of what is new with what is familiar, with the balance between novelty and synthesis, with the struggle to make *partial* order in total chaos.... This cannot be an easy life.”

—J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904–1967)

“The only coöperation which is commonly possible is exceedingly *partial* and superficial; and what little true coöperation there is, is as if it were not, being a harmony inaudible to men. If a man has faith, he will coöperate with equal faith everywhere; if he has not faith, he will continue to live like the rest of the world, whatever company he is joined to.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

“We were soon in the smooth water of the Quakish Lake,... and we had our first, but a *partial* view of Ktaadn, its summit veiled in clouds, like a dark isthmus in that quarter, connecting the heavens with the earth.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
