Famous quotes containing the word determining:

    A quality is something capable of being completely embodied. A law never can be embodied in its character as a law except by determining a habit. A quality is how something may or might have been. A law is how an endless future must continue to be.
    Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914)

Members of a church before whose searching covenant all rank was abolished, they stood in awe of each other, as religious men.

    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)
