Famous quotes containing the word forms:

    [In government] the problem to be solved is, not what form of government is perfect, but which of the forms is least imperfect.
    James Madison (1751–1836)

    Our normal waking consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different.
    William James (1842–1910)

    Literary works cannot be taken over like factories, or literary forms of expression like industrial methods. Realist writing, of which history offers many widely varying examples, is likewise conditioned by the question of how, when and for what class it is made use of.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)
