Famous quotes containing the words lewis mumford, mumford and/or lewis:

    Unable to create a meaningful life for itself, the personality takes its own revenge: from the lower depths comes a regressive form of spontaneity: raw animality forms a counterpoise to the meaningless stimuli and the vicarious life to which the ordinary man is conditioned. Getting spiritual nourishment from this chaos of events, sensations, and devious interpretations is the equivalent of trying to pick through a garbage pile for food.
    Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)

    Every new baby is a blind desperate vote for survival: people who find themselves unable to register an effective political protest against extermination do so by a biological act.
    —Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)

    Move then with new desires,
    For where we used to build and love
    Is no man’s land, and only ghosts can live
    Between two fires.
    —Cecil Day Lewis (1904–1972)
