Continental Shelf Boundary

Famous quotes containing the words shelf and/or boundary:

    The boy seemed to have fallen
    From shelf to shelf of someone’s rage.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The totality of our so-called knowledge or beliefs, from the most casual matters of geography and history to the profoundest laws of atomic physics or even of pure mathematics and logic, is a man-made fabric which impinges on experience only along the edges. Or, to change the figure, total science is like a field of force whose boundary conditions are experience.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
