Contact

Famous quotes containing the word contact:

    Perhaps ... women have always been in closer contact with reality than men: it would seem to be the just recompense for being deprived of idealism.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    Whatever my own practice may be, I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as savage tribes have left off eating each other when they came in contact with the more civilized.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Words, words, words! They shut one off from the universe. Three quarters of the time one’s never in contact with things, only with the beastly words that stand for them.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
