Famous quotes containing the word core:

    True, there are architects so called in this country, and I have heard of one at least possessed with the idea of making architectural ornaments have a core of truth, a necessity, and hence a beauty, as if it were a revelation to him. All very well perhaps from his point of view, but only a little better than the common dilettantism.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    For books are more than books, they are the life
    The very heart and core of ages past,
    The reason why men lived and worked and died,
    The essence and quintessence of their lives.
    Amy Lowell (1874–1925)
