Famous quotes containing the word ordering:

    Seeing then that truth consisteth in the right ordering of names in our affirmations, a man that seeketh precise truth, had need to remember what every name he uses stands for; and to place it accordingly; or else he will find himself entangled in words, as a bird in lime-twigs; the more he struggles, the more belimed.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)

    Make gracious attempts at sanctifying Jenny,
    Supply cosmetics for the ordering of her frame,
    Think of her as Leda, as a goddess,
    Emptying a smile on Redkey, Indiana.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    The national anthem belongs to the eighteenth century. In it you find us ordering God about to do our political dirty work.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
