Brand Blanshard Quotes

"...reality is a system, completely ordered and fully intelligible, with which thought in its advance is more and more identifying itself. We may look at the growth of knowledge … as an attempt by our mind to return to union with things as they are in their ordered wholeness…. and if we take this view, our notion of truth is marked out for us. Truth is the approximation of thought to reality … Its measure is the distance thought has travelled … toward that intelligible system … The degree of truth of a particular proposition is to be judged in the first instance by its coherence with experience as a whole, ultimately by its coherence with that further whole, all comprehensive and fully articulated, in which thought can come to rest."

Quotes About Movie Sets

"Elephant, beyond the fact that their size and conformation are aesthetically more suited to the treading of this earth than our angular informity, have an average intelligence comparable to our own. Of course they are less agile and physically less adaptable than ourselves -- nature having developed their bodies in one direction and their brains in another, while human beings, on the other hand, drew from Mr. Darwins lottery of evolution both the winning ticket and the stub to match it. This, I suppose, is why we are so wonderful and can make movies and electric razors and wireless sets -- and guns with which to shoot the elephant, the hare, clay pigeons, and each other." - Author: Beryl Markham

Quotes About How Much I Love Her

"How could she even wonder? "You know why I want you? I didnt know I was lost until you found me. I didnt know what alone was until the first night I spent without you in my bed. Youre the one thing Ive got right. Youre what Ive been waiting for, Pigeon."Abby reached up to take my face between her hands, and I wrapped my arms around her, lifting her off the floor.
