Famous quotes containing the word singular:

    And that singular anomaly, the lady novelist—
    I don’t think she’d be missed—I’m sure she’d not be
    missed!
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    English general and singular terms, identity, quantification, and the whole bag of ontological tricks may be correlated with elements of the native language in any of various mutually incompatible ways, each compatible with all possible linguistic data, and none preferable to another save as favored by a rationalization of the native language that is simple and natural to us.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    “Oh, nonio, Antonio!
    You’re far too bleak and bonio!
    And all that I wish,
    You singular fish,
    Is that you will quickly begonio.”
    Laura Elizabeth Richards (1850–1943)
