Recognized

Famous quotes containing the word recognized:

    What is called politics is comparatively something so superficial and inhuman, that practically I have never fairly recognized that it concerns me at all.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The problems of society will also be the problems of the predominant language of that society. It is the carrier of its perceptions, its attitudes, and its goals, for through it, the speakers absorb entrenched attitudes. The guilt of English then must be recognized and appreciated before its continued use can be advocated.
    Njabulo Ndebele (b. 1948)

    ... metaphysics, even bad metaphysics, really rests on observations, whether consciously or not; and the only reason that this is not universally recognized is that it rests upon kinds of phenomena with which every man’s experience is so saturated that he pays no particular attention to them.
    Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914)
