of which everything that could possibly be said of it, every
predicate, as grammarians say, is equally true? If there
be not such a noun permit me at on the spot to fabricate
one. You will, I am sure, admit the following two truisms:
first, that for every predicate there is a possible directly
contradictory predicate; thus, to "is divisible by two without
remaninder," there is "is odd in number;" and to "is middling,"
