Famous quotes containing the word task:

    All the sciences are now under an obligation to prepare for the future task of philosopher, which is to solve the problem of value, to determine the rank order of values.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    We must not leap to the fatalistic conclusion that we are stuck with the conceptual scheme that we grew up in. We can change it, bit by bit, plank by plank, though meanwhile there is nothing to carry us along but the evolving conceptual scheme itself. The philosopher’s task was well compared by Neurath to that of a mariner who must rebuild his ship on the open sea.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    They talk about a woman’s sphere,
    As though it had a limit.
    There’s not a place in earth or heaven.
    There’s not a task to mankind given ...
    Without a woman in it.
    Kate Field (1838–1896)
