Words of Note

If we want to know the true value,

the real purpose, the exact quality of

anything, we must discover what it

possesses that separates it from

other things - what faculty, or

function, or principle, or law

pertains to it alone, and by which it

may be distinguished.

Oliver Bell Bunce,

19th-century American author

From 'Bachelor Bluff' (1881).
