Famous quotes containing the words davis and/or hall:

    Man is by nature a pragmatic materialist, a mechanic, a lover of gadgets and gadgetry; and these are qualities that characterize the “establishment” which regulates modern society: pragmatism, materialism, mechanization, and gadgetry. Woman, on the other hand, is a practical idealist, a humanitarian with a strong sense of noblesse oblige, an altruist rather than a capitalist.
    —Elizabeth Gould Davis (b. 1910)

    Go where he will, the wise man is at home,
    His hearth the earth,—his hall the azure dome;
    Where his clear spirit leads him, there’s his road,
    By God’s own light illumined and foreshadowed.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
