Famous quotes containing the word cast:

    You may melt your metals and cast them into the most beautiful moulds you can; they will never excite me like the forms which this molten earth flows out into. And not only it, but the institutions upon it are plastic like clay in the hands of the potter.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    “what has cast such a shadow upon you” “The negro.”
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    You may, or may not, have better child care instincts than your husband; but his can certainly be developed. If you don’t respect the natural parenting talents that each of you has, you may inadvertently cast the two of you into the skewed but complementary roles of the Expert and the Dumb Apprentice.
    Jean Marzollo (20th century)
