Famous quotes containing the word called:

    ‘A thing is called by a certain name because it instantiates a certain universal’ is obviously circular when particularized, but it looks imposing when left in this general form. And it looks imposing in this general form largely because of the inveterate philosophical habit of treating the shadows cast by words and sentences as if they were separately identifiable. Universals, like facts and propositions, are such shadows.
    David Pears (b. 1921)

    The blue we bathe in is the blue we breathe. The blue we breathe, I fear, is what we want from life and only find in fiction. For the voyeur, fiction is what’s called going all the way.
    William Gass (b. 1924)

    He loved strange thought
    And knew that sweet extremity of pride
    That’s called platonic love,
    And that to such a pitch of passion wrought
    Nothing could bring him, when his lady died,
    Anodyne for his love.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
