Famous quotes containing the words order of and/or order:

    The universal principle of etymology in all languages: words are carried over from bodies and from the properties of bodies to express the things of the mind and spirit. The order of ideas must follow the order of things.
    Giambattista Vico (1688–1744)

    Perchance not he but Nature ailed,
    The world and not the infant failed.
    It was not ripe yet to sustain
    A genius of so fine a strain,
    Who gazed upon the sun and moon
    As if he came unto his own,
    And, pregnant with his grander thought,
    Brought the old order into doubt.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
