Famous quotes containing the words buildings and/or public:

    The desert is a natural extension of the inner silence of the body. If humanity’s language, technology, and buildings are an extension of its constructive faculties, the desert alone is an extension of its capacity for absence, the ideal schema of humanity’s disappearance.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    O Jesse had a wife, a mourner all her life
    And the children they were brave,
    But the dirty little coward that shot Mr. Howard
    He laid Jesse James in his grave.
    —Administration in the State of Miss, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
