Famous quotes containing the word pure:

    The finite is annihilated in the presence of the infinite, and becomes a pure nothing. So our spirit before God, so our justice before divine justice.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    Whenever a person strives, by the help of dialectic, to start in pursuit of every reality by a simple process of reason, independent of all sensuous information—never flinching, until by an act of the pure intelligence he has grasped the real nature of good—he arrives at the very end of the intellectual world.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    So must pure lovers’ souls descend
    T’affections, and to faculties,
    Which sense may reach and apprehend,
    Else a great Prince in prison lies.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)
