Famous quotes containing the word notion:

    We have heard much about the poetry of mathematics, but very little of it has yet been sung. The ancients had a juster notion of their poetic value than we.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We can conceive a thinking being to have either many or few perceptions. Suppose the mind to be reduced even below the life of an oyster. Suppose it to have only one perception, as of thirst or hunger. Consider it in that situation. Do you conceive any thing but merely that perception? Have you any notion of self or substance? If not, the addition of other perceptions can never give you that notion.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    Many things, for aught I know, may exist, whereof neither I nor any other man hath or can have any idea or notion whatsoever.
    George Berkeley (1685–1753)
