Famous quotes containing the word product:

    Good is a product of the ethical and spiritual artistry of individuals; it cannot be mass-produced.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    Much of our American progress has been the product of the individual who had an idea; pursued it; fashioned it; tenaciously clung to it against all odds; and then produced it, sold it, and profited from it.
    Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

    The seashore is a sort of neutral ground, a most advantageous point from which to contemplate this world. It is even a trivial place. The waves forever rolling to the land are too far-traveled and untamable to be familiar. Creeping along the endless beach amid the sun-squall and the foam, it occurs to us that we, too, are the product of sea-slime.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
