Revolving

Famous quotes containing the word revolving:

    Behold now this vast city; a city of refuge, the mansion house of liberty, encompassed and surrounded with his protection; the shop of war hath not there more anvils and hammers waking, to fashion out the plates and instruments of armed justice in defence of beleaguered truth, than there be pens and hands there, sitting by their studious lamps, musing, searching, revolving new notions.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    A man so various, that he seemed to be
    Not one, but all mankind’s epitome.
    Stiff in opinions, always in the wrong;
    Was everything by starts, and nothing long:
    But in the course of one revolving moon
    Was chemist, fiddler, statesman and buffoon.
    John Dryden (1631–1700)

    Industrial man—a sentient reciprocating engine having a fluctuating output, coupled to an iron wheel revolving with uniform velocity. And then we wonder why this should be the golden age of revolution and mental derangement.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
