Famous quotes containing the word exempt:

    But grant, the virtues of a temp’rate prime

    And glides in modest Innocence away;
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Theoretically, I grant you, there is no possibility of error in necessary reasoning. But to speak thus “theoretically,” is to use language in a Pickwickian sense. In practice, and in fact, mathematics is not exempt from that liability to error that affects everything that man does.
    Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914)

    There is nothing exempt from the peril of mutation; the earth, heavens, and whole world is thereunto subject.
    Sir Walter Raleigh (1552–1618)
