Famous quotes containing the word set:

    One, two and many: flesh had made him blind,
    Flesh had one pleasure only in the act,
    Flesh set one purpose only in the mind—
    Triumph of flesh and afterwards to find
    Still those same terrors wherewith flesh was racked.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    The Bostonians are really, as a race, far inferior in point of anything beyond mere intellect to any other set upon the continent of North America. They are decidedly the most servile imitators of the English it is possible to conceive.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1845)

    The truth of the thoughts that are here set forth seems to me unassailable and definitive. I therefore believe myself to have found, on all essential points, the final solution of the problems. And if I am not mistaken in this belief, then the second thing in which the value of this work consists is that it shows how little is achieved when these problems are solved.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)
