Statements

Famous quotes containing the word statements:

    We assume that politicians are without honor. We read their statements trying to crack the code. The scandals of their politics: not so much that men in high places lie, only that they do so with such indifference, so endlessly, still expecting to be believed. We are accustomed to the contempt inherent in the political lie.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    In so far as the statements of geometry speak about reality, they are not certain, and in so far as they are certain, they do not speak about reality.
    Albert Einstein (1879–1955)

    The wise man regulates his conduct by the theories both of religion and science. But he regards these theories not as statements of ultimate fact but as art-forms.
    —J.B.S. (John Burdon Sanderson)
