Steel Plant

Famous quotes containing the words steel and/or plant:

    Men admire the man who can organize their wishes and thoughts in stone and wood and steel and brass.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The North American system only wants to consider the positive aspects of reality. Men and women are subjected from childhood to an inexorable process of adaptation; certain principles, contained in brief formulas are endlessly repeated by the press, the radio, the churches, and the schools, and by those kindly, sinister beings, the North American mothers and wives. A person imprisoned by these schemes is like a plant in a flowerpot too small for it: he cannot grow or mature.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)
