Famous quotes containing the word significance:

    History is the interpretation of the significance that the past has for us.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    I am not afraid that I shall exaggerate the value and significance of life, but that I shall not be up to the occasion which it is.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The hypothesis I wish to advance is that ... the language of morality is in ... grave disorder.... What we possess, if this is true, are the fragments of a conceptual scheme, parts of which now lack those contexts from which their significance derived. We possess indeed simulacra of morality, we continue to use many of the key expressions. But we have—very largely if not entirely—lost our comprehension, both theoretical and practical, of morality.
    Alasdair Chalmers MacIntyre (b. 1929)
