Circuit Switch Call

Famous quotes containing the words circuit, switch and/or call:

    each new victim treads unfalteringly
    The never altered circuit of his fate,
    Bringing twelve peers as witness
    Both to his starry rise and starry fall.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    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.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    For what we call illusions are often, in truth, a wider vision of past and present realities—a willing movement of a man’s soul with the larger sweep of the world’s forces—a movement towards a more assured end than the chances of a single life.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
