logic

A Quote by Stephen King on darkness, happiness, logic, reflection, sanity, and universe

There's a Mr. Hyde for every happy Jekyll face, a dark face on the other side of the mirror. The brain behind that face never heard of razors, prayers, or the logic of the universe. You turn the mirror sideways and see your face reflected with a sinister left-hand twist, half mad and half sane.

Stephen King (1947 -)

A Quote by Stephen King on change, death, life, logic, sanity, time, and understanding

You can go through your whole life telling yourself that life is logical, life is prosaic, life is sane. Above all sane. And I think it is. I've had a lot of time to think about that. And what I keep coming back to is [her] dying declaration: 'So you understand that when we increase the number of variables, the axioms themselves never change.'

Stephen King (1947 -)

A Quote by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle on crime and logic

Crime is common. Logic is rare. Therefore it is upon the logic rather than upon the crime you should dwell.

A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge on dependence, difficulty, logic, poetry, poets, reason, and science

Poetry, even that of the loftiest, and seemingly, that of the wildest odes, [has] a logic of its own as severe as that of science; and more difficult, because more subtle, more complex, and dependent on more and more fugitive causes. In the truly great poets... there is a reason assignable, not only for every word, but for the position of every word.
