Famous quotes containing the words james and/or tate:

    If we remembered everything, we should on most occasions be as ill off as if we remembered nothing. It would take us as long to recall a space of time as it took the original time to elapse, and we should never get ahead with our thinking. All recollected times undergo, accordingly, what M. Ribot calls foreshortening; and this foreshortening is due to the omission of an enormous number of facts which filled them.
    —William James (1842–1910)

    Who let me love you two? Have I been wrong
    To love you well who cannot love me long?
    —Allen Tate (1899–1979)
