Page 87 - In a less analytical language he might have at command a sound corresponding to a sentence rather than to a "noun substantive." The verb of inflected languages, 2 such as Greek or Latin, in which the "nominative case" need not be supplied even by a pronoun, is the type for us of a sentence not yet broken up. The bearing of this truth on Logic is to make us treat it in two parts and not in three. We do not treat of Name, Proposition, Syllogism, or of Concept, Judgment, Inference, but only of the two...

And let me tell you, — not as taunting men, But teaching you the intention of my gifts, — How, first beholding, they beheld in vain, And, hearing, heard not, but, like shapes in dreams, Mixed all things wildly down the tedious time, Nor knew to build a house against the sun With wicketed sides, nor any wood-craft knew, But lived, like silly ants, beneath the ground In hollow caves unsunned....
