Platinum Group Metals

Famous quotes containing the words platinum, group and/or metals:

    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)

    The boys think they can all be athletes, and the girls think they can all be singers. That’s the way to fame and success. ...as a group blacks must give up their illusions.
    Kristin Hunter (b. 1931)

    As in digging for precious metals in the mines, much earthy rubbish has first to be troublesomely handled and thrown out; so, in digging in one’s soul for the fine gold of genius, much dullness and common-place is first brought to light.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
