Proof Mass

Famous quotes containing the words proof and/or mass:

    Sculpture and painting are very justly called liberal arts; a lively and strong imagination, together with a just observation, being absolutely necessary to excel in either; which, in my opinion, is by no means the case of music, though called a liberal art, and now in Italy placed even above the other two—a proof of the decline of that country.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    The great mass of people judge well of things, for they are in natural ignorance, which is man’s true state.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
