Famous quotes containing the word barrels:

    The idea that information can be stored in a changing world without an overwhelming depreciation of its value is false. It is scarcely less false than the more plausible claim that after a war we may take our existing weapons, fill their barrels with cylinder oil, and coat their outsides with sprayed rubber film, and let them statically await the next emergency.
    Norbert Wiener (1894–1964)

    What is the good of a man and he
    Alone and alone, with a speckled shin?
    I would that I drank with my love on my knee,
    Between two barrels at the inn.
    Oro, oro!
    To-morrow night I will break down the door.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
