Definition of Dimension

Dimension

  1. Measure in a single line, as length, breadth, height, thickness, or circumference; extension; measurement; -- usually, in the plural, measure in length and breadth, or in length, breadth, and thickness; extent; size; as, the dimensions of a room, or of a ship; the dimensions of a farm, of a kingdom.
  2. Extent; reach; scope; importance; as, a project of large dimensions.
  3. The degree of manifoldness of a quantity; as, time is quantity having one dimension; volume has three dimensions, relative to extension.
  4. A literal factor, as numbered in characterizing a term. The term dimensions forms with the cardinal numbers a phrase equivalent to degree with the ordinal; thus, a2b2c is a term of five dimensions, or of the fifth degree.
  5. The manifoldness with which the fundamental units of time, length, and mass are involved in determining the units of other physical quantities.

Dimension Quotations

We have created characters and animated them in the dimension of depth, revealing through them to our perturbed world that the things we have in common far outnumber and outweigh those that divide us.
Walt Disney

Our soul is cast into a body, where it finds number, time, dimension. Thereupon it reasons, and calls this nature necessity, and can believe nothing else.
Blaise Pascal

It is old age, rather than death, that is to be contrasted with life. Old age is life's parody, whereas death transforms life into a destiny: in a way it preserves it by giving it the absolute dimension. Death does away with time.
Simone de Beauvoir

It is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up.
Eckhart Tolle

And suddenly I realised that I was no longer driving the car consciously. I was driving it by a kind of instinct, only I was in a different dimension.
Ayrton Senna
