Famous quotes containing the word disorder:

    When the soul drifts uncertainly between life and the dream, between the mind’s disorder and the return to cool reflection, it is in religious thought that we should seek consolation.
    Gérard De Nerval (1808–1855)

    A. Well, an old order is a violent one.
    This proves nothing. Just one more truth, one more
    Element in the immense disorder of truths.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    In a town-meeting, the great secret of political science was uncovered, and the problem solved, how to give every individual his fair weight in the government, without any disorder from numbers. In a town-meeting, the roots of society were reached. Here the rich gave counsel, but the poor also; and moreover, the just and the unjust.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
