  • We easily fall into the habit of accepting compressed statements which save us from the trouble of thinking. Thus arises what I shall call ‘Potted Thinking’.
    • As quoted in Thinking to Some Purpose (1939), p. 67
  • A system is said to be coherent if every fact in the system is related every other fact in the system by relations that are not merely conjunctive. A deductive system affords a good example of a coherent system.
    • As quoted in A Modern Introduction to Logic (1930), p. 198.
