Absolute Reality

Famous quotes containing the words absolute and/or reality:

    All beauties contain, like all possible phenomena, something eternal and something transitory,—something absolute and something particular. Absolute and eternal beauty does not exist, or rather it is only an abstraction skimmed from the common surface of different sorts of beauty. The particular element of each beauty comes from the emotions, and as we each have our own particular emotions, so we have our beauty.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)

    The adjustment of reality to the masses and of the masses to reality is a process of unlimited scope, as much for thinking as for perception.
    Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)
