Famous quotes containing the word routine:

    An entertainment is something which distracts us or diverts us from the routine of daily life. It makes us for the time being forget our cares and worries; it interrupts our conscious thoughts and habits, rests our nerves and minds, though it may incidentally exhaust our bodies. Art, on the other hand, though it may divert us from the normal routine of our existence, causes us in some way or other to become conscious of that existence.
    Sir Herbert Read (1893–1968)

    Of lower states, of acts of routine and sense, we can tell somewhat; but the masterpieces of God, the total growths and universal movements of the soul, he hideth; they are incalculable. I can know that truth is divine and helpful; but how it shall help me I can have no guess, for so to be is the sole inlet of so to know.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    As estimated, you died. Things marched,
    sufficient, to that end.
    Just so much Zyklon and leather, patented
    terror, so many routine cries.
    Geoffrey Hill (b. 1932)
