Famous quotes containing the word raw:

    One farmer says to me, “You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make bones with;” and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying his system with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Knowledge in the form of an informational commodity indispensable to productive power is already, and will continue to be, a major—perhaps the major—stake in the worldwide competition for power. It is conceivable that the nation-states will one day fight for control of information, just as they battled in the past for control over territory, and afterwards for control over access to and exploitation of raw materials and cheap labor.
    Jean François Lyotard (b. 1924)

    And we can get back to that raw state
    Of feeling, so long deemed
    Inconsequential and therefore appropriate to our later musings
    About religion, about migrations. What is restored
    Becomes stronger than the loss as it is remembered;
    Is a new, separate life of its own.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
