Famous quotes containing the word suppose:

    I have grown so tired of Woman with a capital W, though I suppose it is rankest heresy to say so. I don’t want to be Woman at all—I have begun to feel that I want to be something like this—WO—A–.
    Frances Hodgson Burnett (1849–1924)

    Suppose that humans happen to be so constructed that they desire the opportunity for freely undertaken productive work. Suppose that they want to be free from the meddling of technocrats and commissars, bankers and tycoons, mad bombers who engage in psychological tests of will with peasants defending their homes, behavioral scientists who can’t tell a pigeon from a poet, or anyone else who tries to wish freedom and dignity out of existence or beat them into oblivion.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)

    We must not suppose that, because a man is a rational animal, he will, therefore, always act rationally; or, because he has such or such a predominant passion, that he will act invariably and consequentially in pursuit of it. No, we are complicated machines; and though we have one main spring that gives motion to the whole, we have an infinity of little wheels, which, in their turns, retard, precipitate, and sometime stop that motion.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
