Famous quotes containing the word positive:

    It is easy and dismally enervating to think of opposition as merely perverse or actually evil—far more invigorating to see it as essential for honing the mind, and as a positive good in itself. For the day that moral issues cease to be fought over is the day the word “human” disappears from the race.
    Jill Tweedie (b. 1936)

    Blessed be the inventor of photography! I set him above even the inventor of chloroform!

    Jane Welsh Carlyle (1801–1866)

    I am positive I have a soul; nor can all the books with which materialists have pester’d the world ever convince me of the contrary.
