Famous quotes containing the word transition:

    The most remarkable aspect of the transition we are living through is not so much the passage from want to affluence as the passage from labor to leisure.... Leisure contains the future, it is the new horizon.... The prospect then is one of unremitting labor to bequeath to future generations a chance of founding a society of leisure that will overcome the demands and compulsions of productive labor so that time may be devoted to creative activities or simply to pleasure and happiness.
    Henri Lefebvre (b. 1901)

    The god or hero of the sculptor is always represented in a transition from that which is representable to the senses, to that which is not.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Some of the taverns on this road, which were particularly dirty, were plainly in a transition state from the camp to the house.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
