Famous quotes containing the words complex, farm and/or house:
“Power is not an institution, and not a structure; neither is it a certain strength we are endowed with; it is the name that one attributes to a complex strategical situation in a particular society.”
—Michel Foucault (19261984)
“The shifting islands! who would not be willing that his house should be undermined by such a foe! The inhabitant of an island can tell what currents formed the land which he cultivates; and his earth is still being created or destroyed. There before his door, perchance, still empties the stream which brought down the material of his farm ages before, and is still bringing it down or washing it away,the graceful, gentle robber!”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
In the house made of dawn,
In the house made of the evening twilight,
In the house made of the dark cloud, ...
Oh, male divinity!
With your moccasins of dark cloud, come to us.”
—Administration in the State of Ariz, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
