Limits

Famous quotes containing the word limits:

    The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)

    We know then the existence and nature of the finite, because we also are finite and have extension. We know the existence of the infinite and are ignorant of its nature, because it has extension like us, but not limits like us. But we know neither the existence nor the nature of God, because he has neither extension nor limits.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    The great disadvantage, and advantage, of the small urban bourgeois is his limited outlook. He sees the world as a middle- class world, and everything outside these limits is either laughable or slightly wicked.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)
