Famous quotes containing the words clay and/or pigeon:

    The earth is covered thick with other clay,
    Which her own clay shall cover, heaped and pent,
    Rider and horse,—friend, foe,—in one red
    burial blent!
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    Suppose that humans happen to be so constructed that they desire the opportunity for freely undertaken productive work. Suppose that they want to be free from the meddling of technocrats and commissars, bankers and tycoons, mad bombers who engage in psychological tests of will with peasants defending their homes, behavioral scientists who can’t tell a pigeon from a poet, or anyone else who tries to wish freedom and dignity out of existence or beat them into oblivion.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)
