Famous quotes containing the words departments of and/or departments:

    Some of these men had become abstrusely entangled with the spying departments of other nations and would give an amusing jump if you came from behind and tapped them on the shoulder.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    A man sees only what concerns him.... How much more, then, it requires different intentions of the eye and of the mind to attend to different departments of knowledge! How differently the poet and the naturalist look at objects!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
