    Georges Bataille (1897–1962)

    ... dependence upon material possessions inevitably results in the destruction of human character.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)

    Different persons growing up in the same language are like different bushes trimmed and trained to take the shape of identical elephants. The anatomical details of twigs and branches will fulfill the elephantine form differently from bush to bush, but the overall outward results are alike.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
