Famous quotes containing the word produce:

    Hope, politeness, the blowing of a nose, the squeak of a boot, all produce “boum.”
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    I should consent to breed under pressure, if I were convinced in any way of the reasonableness of reproducing the species. But my nerves and the nerves of any woman I could live with three months, would produce only a victim ... lacking in impulse, a mere bundle of discriminations. If I were wealthy I might subsidize a stud of young peasants, or a tribal group in Tahiti.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)

    No man can quite emancipate himself from his age and country, or produce a model in which the education, the religion, the politics, usages, and arts, of his times shall have no share.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
