Double Precision

Famous quotes containing the words double and/or precision:

    In a symbol there is concealment and yet revelation: here therefore, by silence and by speech acting together, comes a double significance.... In the symbol proper, what we can call a symbol, there is ever, more or less distinctly and directly, some embodiment and revelation of the Infinite; the Infinite is made to blend itself with the Finite, to stand visible, and as it were, attainable there. By symbols, accordingly, is man guided and commanded, made happy, made wretched.
    Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)

    Women on trains
    have a life
    that is exactly livable
    the precision of days flashing past
    Audre Lorde (1934–1992)
