Famous quotes containing the word agreement:

    There’s nothing is this world more instinctively abhorrent to me than finding myself in agreement with my fellow-humans.
    Malcolm Muggeridge (1903–1990)

    The methodological advice to interpret in a way that optimizes agreement should not be conceived as resting on a charitable assumption about human intelligence that might turn out to be false. If we cannot find a way to interpret the utterances and other behaviour of a creature as revealing a set of beliefs largely consistent and true by our standards, we have no reason to count that creature as rational, as having beliefs, or as saying anything.
    Donald Davidson (b. 1917)

    That which corrodes the souls of the persecuted is the monstrous inner agreement with the prevailing prejudice against them.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
