Eddy

Famous quotes containing the word eddy:

    “... A nation has to take its natural course
    Of Progress round and round in circles
    From King to Mob to King to Mob to King
    Until the eddy of it eddies out.”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Error is a supposition that pleasure and pain, that intelligence, substance, life, are existent in matter. Error is neither Mind nor one of Mind’s faculties. Error is the contradiction of Truth. Error is a belief without understanding. Error is unreal because untrue. It is that which seemeth to be and is not. If error were true, its truth would be error, and we should have a self-evident absurdity—namely, erroneous truth. Thus we should continue to lose the standard of Truth.
    —Mary Baker Eddy (1821–1910)

    The small perplexities of small minds eddy and boil about you. Confident from the experience that has led you out of these same dangers, you attack each problem as it appears, unafraid.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)
