Platinum/history

Famous quotes containing the words platinum and/or history:

    Flouncing your skirts, you blueness of joy, you flirt of
    politeness,
    You leap, you intelligence, essence of wheelness with silvery nose,
    And your platinum clocks of excitement stir like the hairs of a
    fern.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Classes struggle, some classes triumph, others are eliminated. Such is history; such is the history of civilization for thousands of years.
