Famous quotes containing the word shown:

    It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    I can’t tell you what art does and how it does it, but I know that often art has judged the judges, pleaded revenge to the innocent and shown to the future what the past suffered, so that it has never been forgotten.... Art, when it functions like this, becomes a meeting-place of the invisible, the irreducible, the enduring, guts, and honour.
    John Berger (b. 1926)

    “The ideal reasoner,” he remarked, “would, when he had once been shown a single fact in all its bearings, deduce from it not only all the chain of events which led up to it but also all the results which would follow from it.”
    Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930)
