Circuit Switch Voice

Famous quotes containing the words circuit, switch and/or voice:

    each new victim treads unfalteringly
    The never altered circuit of his fate,
    Bringing twelve peers as witness
    Both to his starry rise and starry fall.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    Uncritical semantics is the myth of a museum in which the exhibits are meanings and the words are labels. To switch languages is to change the labels.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    Summoning a child’s voice from a webfoot stone,
    Never never oh never to regret the bugle I wore
    On my cleaving arm as I blasted in a wave.
    Now shown and mostly bare I would lie down,
    Lie down, like down and live
    As quiet as a bone.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
