Standard Magazine Capacity

Famous quotes containing the words standard, magazine and/or capacity:

    Error is a supposition that pleasure and pain, that intelligence, substance, life, are existent in matter. Error is neither Mind nor one of Mind’s faculties. Error is the contradiction of Truth. Error is a belief without understanding. Error is unreal because untrue. It is that which seemeth to be and is not. If error were true, its truth would be error, and we should have a self-evident absurdity—namely, erroneous truth. Thus we should continue to lose the standard of Truth.
    Mary Baker Eddy (1821–1910)

    In general, one may pronounce kissing dangerous. A spark of fire has often been struck out of the collision of lips, that has blown up the whole magazine of virtue.
    Anonymous, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. Weekly Visitor or Ladies Miscellany, p. 203 (April 1803)

    One would never have guessed that the world had such a capacity for genuine grief. The most we can do is exploit our memories of his excellence.
    John Cheever (1912–1982)
