Consideration is the thought process of considering, of taking everything into account. More concretely, it is the reason or ground for a decision.
- All creative art is magic, is evocation of the unseen in forms persuasive, enlightening, familiar and surprising, for the edification of mankind, pinned down by the conditions of its existence to the earnest consideration of the most insignificant tides of reality.
- Joseph Conrad, Henry James — An Appreciation (1905).
- Consideration, like an angel came
And whipp'd the offending Adam out of him,
Leaving his body as a paradise,
To envelope and contain celestial spirits.
- What you have said
I will consider; what you have to say
I will with patience hear, and find a time
Both meet to hear and answer such high things.
- A stirring dwarf we do allowance give
Before a sleeping giant.
