Famous quotes containing the words competition, water and/or rocket:

    Knowledge in the form of an informational commodity indispensable to productive power is already, and will continue to be, a major—perhaps the major—stake in the worldwide competition for power. It is conceivable that the nation-states will one day fight for control of information, just as they battled in the past for control over territory, and afterwards for control over access to and exploitation of raw materials and cheap labor.
    Jean François Lyotard (b. 1924)

    What’s water but the generated soul?
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    A rocket is an experiment; a star is an observation.
    José Bergamín (1895–1983)
