Famous quotes containing the word form:

    Cruelty has a Human Heart,
    And jealousy a Human Face;
    Terror the Human Form Divine,
    And secrecy the Human Dress.
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    Natural selection, the blind, unconscious, automatic process which Darwin discovered, and which we now know is the explanation for the existence and apparently purposeful form of all life, has no purpose in mind. It has no mind and no mind’s eye. It does not plan for the future. It has no vision, no foresight, no sight at all. If it can be said to play the role of the watchmaker in nature, it is the blind watchmaker.
    Richard Dawkins (b. 1941)

    While they stand at home at the door he is dead already,
    The only son is dead.

    But the mother needs to be better,
    She with thin form presently drest in black,
    By day her meals untouch’d, then at night fitfully sleeping, often waking,
    In the midnight waking, weeping, longing with one deep longing,
    O that she might withdraw unnoticed, silent from life escape and
    withdraw,
    To follow, to seek, to be with her dear dead son.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
