If it were necessary to give the briefest possible definition of imperialism, we should have to say that imperialism is the monopoly stage of capitalism.

My definition of modernism took a while to develop.

Peter Gay, historian

Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that's why it is so complicated.

Like me, the great majority of Americans wish both to preserve the traditional definition of marriage and to oppose bias and intolerance directed towards gays and lesbians.

There is no question that Taiwan is a state in any political science definition of a state.

William Kirby, scientist

The historian is, by definition, absolutely incapable of observing the facts which he examines.

In the past I have declined to comment on my own work: because, it seems to me, a poem is what it is; because a poem is itself a definition, and to try to redefine it is to be apt to falsify it; and because the author is the person least able to consider his work objectively.

I don't think there is such a definition of a perfect family, but I do think that our marriages are in crisis. Our families are in crisis. And I think the African-American family is at one of the worst stages it's been at in a very long time in this country. Fatherlessness is rampant.

Leah Ward Sears, judge

But only 'rich' people by definition have the 'extra' money to buy things and invest to create economic growth.

Does that make any economic sense outside of politics and our emotional desire to make everyone suffer equally through these tough times?
