Famous quotes containing the words total and/or logical:
“The word infant derives from Latin words meaning not yet speaking. It emphasizes what the child cannot do and reflects the babys total dependence on adults. The word toddler, however, demonstrates our change in perspective, for it focuses on the childs increased mobility and burgeoning independence.”
—Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
“Grammar is a tricky, inconsistent thing. Being the backbone of speech and writing, it should, we think, be eminently logical, make perfect sense, like the human skeleton. But, of course, the skeleton is arbitrary, too. Why twelve pairs of ribs rather than eleven or thirteen? Why thirty-two teeth? It has something to do with evolution and functionalismbut only sometimes, not always. So there are aspects of grammar that make good, logical sense, and others that do not.”
—John Simon (b. 1925)
