Multiply

Famous quotes containing the word multiply:

    We go on multiplying our conveniences only to multiply our cares. We increase our possessions only to the enlargement of our anxieties.

    The uselessness and expensiveness of modern women multiply bachelors.

    The most important fact about our shopping malls, as distinct from the ordinary shopping centers where we go for our groceries, is that we do not need most of what they sell, not even for our pleasure or entertainment, not really even for a sensation of luxury. Little in them is essential to our survival, our work, or our play, and the same is true of the boutiques that multiply on our streets.
    Henry Fairlie (1924–1990)
