Famous quotes containing the word pedigree:

    The Pedigree of Honey
    Does not concern the Bee—
    A Clover, any time, to him,
    Is Aristocracy—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    The pedigree of Honey
    Does not concern the Bee,
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    Science asks no questions about the ontological pedigree or a priori character of a theory, but is content to judge it by its performance; and it is thus that a knowledge of nature, having all the certainty which the senses are competent to inspire, has been attained—a knowledge which maintains a strict neutrality toward all philosophical systems and concerns itself not with the genesis or a priori grounds of ideas.
    Chauncey Wright (1830–1875)
