Famous quotes containing the word stimulating:

    We cannot feel strongly toward the totally unlike because it is unimaginable, unrealizable; nor yet toward the wholly like because it is stale—identity must always be dull company. The power of other natures over us lies in a stimulating difference which causes excitement and opens communication, in ideas similar to our own but not identical, in states of mind attainable but not actual.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)

    An imaginative book renders us much more service at first, by stimulating us through its tropes, than afterward, when we arrive at the precise sense of the author. I think nothing is of any value in books, excepting the transcendental and extraordinary.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The study of error is not only in the highest degree prophylactic, but it serves as a stimulating introduction to the study of truth.
    Walter Lippmann (1889–1974)
