Weaver Ants

Famous quotes containing the words weaver and/or ants:

    Machinery is aggressive. The weaver becomes a web, the machinist a machine. If you do not use the tools, they use you. All tools are in one sense edge-tools, and dangerous.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The country of the tourist pamphlet always is another country, an embarrassing abstraction of the desirable that, thank God, does not exist on this planet, where there are always ants and bad smells and empty Coca-Cola bottles to keep the grubby finger- print of reality upon the beautiful.
    Nadine Gordimer (b. 1923)
