Famous quotes containing the word notion:

    I fear the popular notion of success stands in direct opposition in all points to the real and wholesome success. One adores public opinion, the other, private opinion; one, fame, the other, desert; one, feats, the other, humility; one, lucre, the other, love; one, monopoly, and the other, hospitality of mind.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Many things, for aught I know, may exist, whereof neither I nor any other man hath or can have any idea or notion whatsoever.
    George Berkeley (1685–1753)

    We have heard much about the poetry of mathematics, but very little of it has yet been sung. The ancients had a juster notion of their poetic value than we.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
