Reduce

Famous quotes containing the word reduce:

    So if hunger provokes wailing and wailing brings the breast; if the breast permits sucking and milk suggests its swallow; if swallowing issues in sleep and stomachy comfort, then need, ache, message, object, act, and satisfaction are soon associated like charms on a chain; shortly our wants begin to envision the things which well reduce them, and the organism is finally said to wish.
    William Gass (b. 1924)

    When we turn to one another for counsel we reduce the number of our enemies.
    Kahlil Gibran (1883–1931)

    Modern photographers can reduce bones to formlessness, and change a face of the most strange, exquisite and unfathomable beauty into the face of a clubwoman.
    Margaret Anderson (1886–1973)
