A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on correction, earth, logic, philosophy, and time

In the first place a philosophical proposition must be general. It must not deal specially with things on the surface of the earth, or within the solar system, or with any other portion of space and time. . . . This brings us to a second characteristic of philosophical propositions, namely that they must be a priori. A philosophical proposition must be such as can neither be proved nor disproved by empirical evidence. . . . Philosophy, if what has been said is correct, becomes indistinguishable from logic as that word has now come to be used.

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on authors, belief, body, books, correction, food, lies, losing, and work

The body of Benjamin Franklin, printer, (Like the cover of an old book, Its contents worn out, And stript of its lettering and gilding) Lies here, food for worms! Yet the work itself shall not be lost, For it will, as he believed, appear once more In a new and more beautiful edition, Corrected and amended By its Author!

A Quote by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov on art, correction, problems, solution, and work

You are right in demanding that an artist approach his work consciously, but you are confusing two concepts: the solution of a problem and the correct formulation of a problem. Only the second is required of the artist.

A Quote by Ananda K. Coomaraswamy on correction, heroism, and life

Man's activity consists in either a making or doing. Both of these aspects of the active life depend for their correction upon the contemplative life (that is, the Hero).

A Quote by Alvin Toffler on correction, editors, and errors

Anyone nit-picking enough to write a letter of correction to an editor doubtless deserves the error that provoked it.

A Quote by Albert Camus on correction, history, indifference, and misery

To correct a natural indifference I was placed half-way between misery and the sun. Misery kept me from believing that all was well under the sun, and the sun taught me that history wasn't everything.

Albert Camus (1913 - 1960)
