Famous quotes containing the word separate:

    The herd of mankind can hardly be said to think; their notions are almost all adoptive; and, in general, I believe it is better that it should be so; as such common prejudices contribute more to order and quiet, than their own separate reasonings would do, uncultivated and unimproved as they are.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    For a good book has this quality, that it is not merely a petrification of its author, but that once it has been tossed behind, like Deucalion’s little stone, it acquires a separate and vivid life of its own.
    Caroline Lejeune (1897–1973)

    Logic is the procession or proportionate unfolding of the intuition; but its virtue is as silent method; the moment it would appear as propositions, and have a separate value, it is worthless.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
