Objects

Famous quotes containing the word objects:

    The cart before the horse is neither beautiful nor useful. Before we can adorn our houses with beautiful objects the walls must be stripped, and our lives must be stripped, and beautiful housekeeping and beautiful living laid for a foundation.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Luckless is the country in which the symbols of procreation are the objects of shame, while the agents of destruction are honored! And yet you call that member your pudendum, or shameful part, as if there were anything more glorious than creating life, or anything more atrocious than taking it away.
    Savinien Cyrano De Bergerac (1619–1655)

    I was afraid that by observing objects with my eyes and trying to comprehend them with each of my other senses I might blind my soul altogether.
    Socrates (469–399 B.C.)
