Famous quotes containing the word devices:

    There is nothing in machinery, there is nothing in embankments and railways and iron bridges and engineering devices to oblige them to be ugly. Ugliness is the measure of imperfection.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)

    Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation.... Tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and trilling bolster his ego. His anxiety subsides. His inhuman void spreads monstrously like a gray vegetation.
    Jean Arp (1887–1948)

    So that with much ado I was corrupted, and made to learn the dirty devices of this world.
    Which now I unlearn, and become, as it were, a little child again that I may enter into the Kingdom of God.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)
