Famous quotes containing the words horn, keith and/or van:
“I wanted there should be some there next year.
Of course you did. You left the rest for seed,
And for the backwoods woodchuck. Youre the girl!
A Rams Horn orchid seedpod for a woodchuck
Sounds something like. Better than farmers beans
To a discriminating appetite....”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
“Art consists of limitation.... The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
“To call a posit a posit is not to patronize it. A posit can be unavoidable except at the cost of other no less artificial expedients. Everything to which we concede existence is a posit from the standpoint of a description of the theory-building process, and simultaneously real from the standpoint of the theory that is being built.”
—Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
