Strike Option

Famous quotes containing the words strike and/or option:

    I’ll never strike at your past, not even with a flower.
    Samuel Fuller (b. 1911)

    Our passional nature not only lawfully may, but must, decide an option between propositions, whenever it is a genuine option that cannot by its nature be decided on intellectual grounds; for to say, under such circumstances, “Do not decide, but leave the question open,” is itself a passional decision—just like deciding yes or no—and is attended with the same risk of losing the truth.
    William James (1842–1910)
