Pull

Famous quotes containing the word pull:

    We are like horses who hurt themselves as soon as they pull on their bits—and we bow our heads. We even lose consciousness of the situation, we just submit. Any re-awakening of thought is then painful.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    If only we could pull out our brain and use only our eyes.
    Pablo Picasso (1881–1973)

    One must always maintain one’s connection to the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it. To remain in touch with the past requires a love of memory. To remain in touch with the past requires a constant imaginative effort.
    Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962)
