### Famous quotes containing the word partial:

“The one-eyed man will be King in the country of the blind only if he arrives there in full possession of his *partial* faculties—that is, providing he is perfectly aware of the precise nature of sight and does not confuse it with second sight ... nor with madness.”

—Angela Carter (1940–1992)

“It is characteristic of the epistemological tradition to present us with *partial* scenarios and then to demand whole or categorical answers as it were.”

—Avrum Stroll (b. 1921)

“There is no luck in literary reputation. They who make up the final verdict upon every book are not the *partial* and noisy readers of the hour when it appears; but a court as of angels, a public not to be bribed, not to be entreated, and not to be overawed, decides upon every man’s title to fame. Only those books come down which deserve to last.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
