Famous quotes containing the word clear:

    Life direct...is what Flaubert and Joyce have convinced themselves the man may never get quite clear of but the artist has nothing to do with. What they can’t admit is that t is overrated: which artists, faking and fumbling it together out of spit and toothpicks, should know best of all.
    Marvin Mudrick (1921–1986)

    My own, my human mind, which passively
    Now renders and receives fast influencings,
    Holding an unremitting interchange
    With the clear universe of things around;
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    The truth is, that common-sense, or thought as it first emerges above the level of the narrowly practical, is deeply imbued with that bad logical quality to which the epithet metaphysical is commonly applied; and nothing can clear it up but a severe course of logic.
    Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914)
