Recognized

Famous quotes containing the word recognized:

    When a paradox is widely believed, it is no longer recognized as a paradox.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    It is very difficult to be wholly joyous or wholly sad on this earth. The comic, when it is human, soon takes upon itself a face of pain; and some of our griefs ... have their source in weaknesses which must be recognized with smiling compassion as the common inheritance of us all.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    ... 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)
