Famous quotes containing the word raw:

    —‘I wish I had feathers, a fine sweeping gown,
    And a delicate face, and could strut about Town!’—
    ‘My dear—a raw country girl, such as you be,
    Cannot quite expect that. You ain’t ruined,’ said she.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    I reverently believe that the Maker who made us all makes everything in New England but the weather. I don’t know who makes that, but I think it must be raw apprentices in the weather-clerk’s factory who experiment and learn how.... In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four-and-twenty hours.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Our acceptance of an ontology is, I think, similar in principle to our acceptance of a scientific theory, say a system of physics; we adopt, at least insofar as we are reasonable, the simplest conceptual scheme into which the disordered fragments of raw experience can be fitted and arranged.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
