Famous quotes containing the word mould:

    While this America settles in the mould of its vulgarity, heavily
    thickening to empire,
    And protest, only a bubble in the molten mass, pops and sighs out,
    and the mass hardens,
    Robinson Jeffers (1887–1962)

    The civilized nations—Greece, Rome, England—have been sustained by the primitive forests which anciently rotted where they stand. They survive as long as the soil is not exhausted. Alas for human culture! little is to be expected of a nation, when the vegetable mould is exhausted, and it is compelled to make manure of the bones of its fathers. There the poet sustains himself merely by his own superfluous fat, and the philosopher comes down on his marrow-bones.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    You don’t merely give over your creativity to making a film—you give over your life! In theatre, by contrast, you live these two rather strange lives simultaneously; you have no option but to confront the mould on last night’s washing-up.
    Daniel Day Lewis (b. 1957)
