Mind Fire

Famous quotes containing the words mind and/or fire:

    It is wonderful when a calculation is made, how little the mind is actually employed in the discharge of any profession.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Man, became man through work, who stepped out of the animal kingdom as transformer of the natural into the artificial, who became therefore the magician, man the creator of social reality, will always stay the great magician, will always be Prometheus bringing fire from heaven to earth, will always be Orpheus enthralling nature with his music. Not until humanity itself dies will art die.
    Ernst Fischer (1899–1972)
