Famous quotes containing the word faculty:

    To write well, to have style ... is to paint. The master faculty of style is therefore the visual memory. If a writer does not see what he describes—countrysides and figures, movements and gestures—how could he have a style, that is originality?
    Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)

    Psychoanalysis is out, under a therapeutic disguise, to do away entirely with the moral faculty in man.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    If we may believe our logicians, man is distinguished from all other creatures by the faculty of laughter. He has a heart capable of mirth, and naturally disposed to it.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)
