Electric Lighting Company

Famous quotes containing the words electric, lighting and/or company:

    That’s the down-town frieze,
    Principally the church steeple,
    A black line beside a white line;
    And the stack of the electric plant,
    A black line drawn on flat air.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    There is no more miserable human being than one in whom nothing is habitual but indecision, and for whom the lighting of every cigar, the drinking of every cup, the time of rising and going to bed every day, and the beginning of every bit of work, are subjects of express volitional deliberation.
    William James (1842–1910)

    More company increases happiness, but does not lighten or diminish misery.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)
