### Famous quotes containing the word assuming:

“The only ways of enquiry that lead to knowledge ... the one way *assuming* that being is and that it is impossible for it not to be, is the trustworthy path, for truth attends it. The Other, that non-being is and that it necessarily is, I call a wholly incredible course, since thou canst not recognize not-being ... nor couldst thou speak of it, for though and being are the same things.”

—Parmenides (c. 515–480 B.C.)

“Quite generally, the familiar, just because it is familiar, is not cognitively understood. The commonest way in which we deceive either ourselves or others about understanding is by *assuming* something as familiar, and accepting it on that account; with all its pros and cons, such knowing never gets anywhere, and it knows not why.... The analysis of an idea, as it used to be carried out, was, in fact, nothing else than ridding it of the form in which it had become familiar.”

—Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770–1831)

“He exercises of his brains,

That is, *assuming* that he’s got any.”

—Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)
