Feeding Apparatus

Famous quotes containing the words feeding and/or apparatus:

    When all who had money and leisure
    Grew rural o’er ices and wines,
    All pleasantly toiling for pleasure,
    All hungrily pining for pines,
    And making of beautiful speeches,
    And marring of beautiful shows,
    And feeding on delicate peaches,
    And treading on delicate toes.
    Winthrop Mackworth Praed (1802–1839)

    Man is the end of nature; nothing so easily organizes itself in every part of the universe as he; no moss, no lichen is so easily born; and he takes along with him and puts out from himself the whole apparatus of society and condition extempore, as an army encamps in a desert, and where all was just now blowing sand, creates a white city in an hour, a government, a market, a place for feasting, for conversation, and for love.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
