Famous quotes containing the words stephenson and/or robert:

    Coal is a portable climate. It carries the heat of the tropics to Labrador and the polar circle; and it is the means of transporting itself whithersoever it is wanted. Watt and Stephenson whispered in the ear of mankind their secret, that a half-ounce of coal will draw two tons a mile, and coal carries coal, by rail and by boat, to make Canada as warm as Calcutta, and with its comfort brings its industrial power.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Punctually at Christmas the soft plush
    Of sentiment snows down, embosoms all
    The sharp and pointed shapes of venom,
    —William Robert Rodgers (1909–1969)
