Famous quotes containing the words stones, american and/or rune:

    Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.
    Jules Henri Poincare (1854–1912)

    The American ideal, after all, is that everyone should be as much alike as possible.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)

    This is no rune nor symbol,
    what I mean is it is so simple
    yet no trick of the pen or brush
    could capture that impression;
    what I wanted to indicate was
    a new phase, a new distinction of colour.
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)
