Famous quotes containing the word mumford:

    The cycle of the machine is now coming to an end. Man has learned much in the hard discipline and the shrewd, unflinching grasp of practical possibilities that the machine has provided in the last three centuries: but we can no more continue to live in the world of the machine than we could live successfully on the barren surface of the moon.
    —Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)

    Today, the notion of progress in a single line without goal or limit seems perhaps the most parochial notion of a very parochial century.
    —Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)

    However far modern science and technics have fallen short of their inherent possibilities, they have taught mankind at least one lesson: Nothing is impossible.
    —Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)
