Famous quotes containing the words james and/or stephens:

    Essential truth, the truth of the intellectualists, the truth with no one thinking it, is like the coat that fits tho no one has ever tried it on, like the music that no ear has listened to. It is less real, not more real, than the verified article; and to attribute a superior degree of glory to it seems little more than a piece of perverse abstraction-worship.
    —William James (1842–1910)

    straightway like a bell
    Came low and clear
    The slow, sad murmur of the distant seas,
    —James Kenneth Stephens (1882–1950)
