Famous quotes containing the word exploit:

    A modern fleet of ships does not so much make use of the sea as exploit a highway.
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    Abused as we abuse it at present, dramatic art is in no sense cathartic; it is merely a form of emotional masturbation.... It is the rarest thing to find a player who has not had his character affected for the worse by the practice of his profession. Nobody can make a habit of self-exhibition, nobody can exploit his personality for the sake of exercising a kind of hypnotic power over others, and remain untouched by the process.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    Fools make researches and wise men exploit them.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)
