Terms

Famous quotes containing the word terms:

    We must conclude that it is not only a particular political ideology that has failed, but the idea that men and women could ever define themselves in terms that exclude their spiritual needs.
    Salman Rushdie (b. 1948)

    For my part, if a lie may do thee grace,
    I’ll gild it with the happiest terms I have.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    As for the terms good and bad, they indicate no positive quality in things regarded in themselves, but are merely modes of thinking, or notions which we form from the comparison of things with one another. Thus one and the same thing can be at the same time good, bad, and indifferent. For instance music is good for him that is melancholy, bad for him who mourns; for him who is deaf, it is neither good nor bad.
    Baruch (Benedict)
