Plant Material

Famous quotes containing the words plant and/or material:

    It is not growing like a tree
    In bulk, doth make man better be,
    Or standing long an oak, three hundred year,
    To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere:
    A lily of a day
    Is fairer far in May
    Although it fall and die that night;
    It was the plant and flower of light.
    In small proportions we just beauties see,
    And in short measures life may perfect be.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)

    I wish all men to be free. I wish the material prosperity of the already free which I feel sure the extinction of slavery would bring.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
