Transform

Famous quotes containing the word transform:

    Bees plunder the flowers here and there, but afterward they make of them honey, which is all theirs; it is no longer thyme or marjoram. Even so with the pieces borrowed from others; one will transform and blend them to make a work that is all one’s own, that is, one’s judgement. Education, work, and study aim only at forming this.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    God defend me from that Welsh fairy,
    Lest he transform me to a piece of cheese!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The inspired scribbler always has the gift for gossip in our common usage ... he or she can always inspire the commonplace with an uncommon flavor, and transform trivialities by some original grace or sympathy or humor or affection.
    Elizabeth Drew (1887–1965)
