Famous quotes containing the words symptoms and/or motor:

    The human condition is such that pain and effort are not just symptoms which can be removed without changing life itself; they are the modes in which life itself, together with the necessity to which it is bound, makes itself felt. For mortals, the “easy life of the gods” would be a lifeless life.
    Hannah Arendt (1906–1975)

    What shall we do with country quiet now?
    A motor drones insanely in the blue
    Like a bad bird in a dream.
    Babette Deutsch (1895–1982)
