“The only thing that one really knows about human nature is that it changes. Change is the one quality we can *predicate* of it. The systems that fail are those that rely on the permanency of human nature, and not on its growth and development. The error of Louis XIV was that he thought human nature would always be the same. The result of his error was the French Revolution. It was an admirable result.”

—Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

“The *predicate* of truth-value of a proposition, therefore, is a mere fictive quality; its place is in an ideal world of science only, whereas actual science cannot make use of it. Actual science instead employs throughout the *predicate* of weight.”

—Hans Reichenbach (1891–1953)
