Life Saving Clubs

Famous quotes containing the words life, saving and/or clubs:

    when this life is from the body fled,
    To see it selfe in that eternall Glasse,
    Where time doth end, and thoughts accuse the dead,
    Where all to come, is one with all that was;
    Then living men aske how he left his breath,
    That while he lived never thought of death.
    Fulke Greville (1554–1628)

    Science, unguided by a higher abstract principle, freely hands over its secrets to a vastly developed and commercially inspired technology, and the latter, even less restrained by a supreme culture saving principle, with the means of science creates all the instruments of power demanded from it by the organization of Might.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    As night returns bringing doubts
    That swarm around the sleeper’s head
    But are fended off with clubs and knives ...
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
