### Famous quotes containing the word theory:

“No one thinks anything silly is suitable when they are an adolescent. Such an enormous share of their own behavior is silly that they lose all proper perspective on silliness, like a baker who is nauseated by the sight of his own eclairs. This provides another good argument for the emerging *theory* that the best use of cryogenics is to freeze all human beings when they are between the ages of twelve and nineteen.”

—Anna Quindlen (20th century)
