Field

Famous quotes containing the word field:

    Better risk loss of truth than chance of error—that is your faith-vetoer’s exact position. He is actively playing his stake as much as the believer is; he is backing the field against the religious hypothesis, just as the believer is backing the religious hypothesis against the field.
    William James (1842–1910)

    Is not the tremendous strength in men of the impulse to creative work in every field precisely due to their feeling of playing a relatively small part in the creation of living beings, which constantly impels them to an overcompensation in achievement?
    Karen Horney (1885–1952)

    He stung me first and stung me afterward.
    He rolled me off the field head over heels
    And would not listen to my explanations.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
