Famous quotes containing the words intelligence, open and/or source:

    The methodological advice to interpret in a way that optimizes agreement should not be conceived as resting on a charitable assumption about human intelligence that might turn out to be false. If we cannot find a way to interpret the utterances and other behaviour of a creature as revealing a set of beliefs largely consistent and true by our standards, we have no reason to count that creature as rational, as having beliefs, or as saying anything.
    Donald Davidson (b. 1917)

    Oh! joyous hearts! enfired with holy flame!
    Is speech thus tasseled with praise?
    Will not your inward fire of joy contain:
    That it in open flames doth blaze?
    For in Christ’s coach saints sweetly sing,
    As they to glory ride therein.
    Edward Taylor (1645–1729)

    The dream of reason produces monsters. Imagination deserted by reason creates impossible, useless thoughts. United with reason, imagination is the mother of all art and the source of all its beauty.
    —Francisco José De Goya Y Lucientes (1746–1828)
