PARADOX: DR. HARESHWAR ROY


QUESTION: What is Paradox? 
ANSWER: A paradox is a statement, though it appears self contradictory, contains the basis of truth that reconciles the seeming opposites.
Examples:  [1] Great wits sometimes may gloriously offend,
                         And rise to faults true critics dare not mend.
                         [Pope: An Essay On Criticism]
                    [2] One short sleep, we wake eternally
                          And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.
                          [John Donne]
                    [3] The child is the father of man.
                          [Wordsworth]
