Famous quotes containing the words models, drag and/or curve:

    French rhetorical models are too narrow for the English tradition. Most pernicious of French imports is the notion that there is no person behind a text. Is there anything more affected, aggressive, and relentlessly concrete than a Parisan intellectual behind his/her turgid text? The Parisian is a provincial when he pretends to speak for the universe.
    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

    Strong currents drag many stones and bushes along with them, strong intellects many dense and muddled minds.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The years-heired feature that can

    Of durance—that is I;
    The eternal thing in man,
    That heeds no call to die.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)
