Famous quotes containing the word master:

    The taste for worst-case scenarios reflects the need to master fear of what is felt to be uncontrollable. It also expresses an imaginative complicity with disaster.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    Servants honor their master by their service.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    Though it seems improbable on the face of it
    You must master the huge retards and have faith in the slow
    Blossoming of haystacks, stairways, walls of convolvulus,
    Until the moon can do no more. Exhausted,
    You get out of bed. Your project is completed
    Though the experiment is a mess.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
