Famous quotes containing the words anatomy and/or comparative:

    But a man must keep an eye on his servants, if he would not have them rule him. Man is a shrewd inventor, and is ever taking the hint of a new machine from his own structure, adapting some secret of his own anatomy in iron, wood, and leather, to some required function in the work of the world. But it is found that the machine unmans the user. What he gains in making cloth, he loses in general power.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Our comparative fidelity was fear of defeat at the hands of another partner.
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)
