Abstractly Reacting

(Photobucket: misskitty68)

  • The force that propels the human spirit on the clear way forward and upward is the abstract spirit.

-Wassily Kandinsky  'On the Question of Form', in Blaue Reiter Almanac.

  • Literature is not an abstract science, to which exact definitions can be applied.It is an Art rather, the success of which depends on personal persuasiveness, on the author's skill to give as on ours to receive.

- SirArthurThomas known as  'Q' Quiller-Couch
  Inaugural lecture as Professor of English at Cambridge University.

  • Abstract refers to something that is not physical or concrete. (adjective)
An example of abstract is the idea of justice.
