Famous quotes containing the word physical:

    Perhaps it is the lowest of the qualities of an orator, but it is, on so many occasions, of chief importance,—a certain robust and radiant physical health; or—shall I say?—great volumes of animal heat.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Nationality is the miracle of political independence; race is the principle of physical analogy.
    Benjamin Disraeli (1804–1881)

    I have often been reproached with the aridity of my genius; a deficiency of imagination has been imputed to me as a crime; and the Pyrrhonism of my opinions has at all times rendered me notorious. Indeed, a strong relish for physical philosophy has, I fear, tinctured my mind with a very common error of this age—I mean the habit of referring occurrences, even the least susceptible of such reference, to the principles of that science.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
