Change Basis

Famous quotes containing the words change and/or basis:

    Uncritical semantics is the myth of a museum in which the exhibits are meanings and the words are labels. To switch languages is to change the labels.

    It was the custom
    For his rage against chaos
    To abate on the way to church,
    In regulations of his spirit.
    How good life is, on the basis of propriety,
    To be followed by a platter of capon!
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
