Famous quotes containing the words history, civil and/or engineering:

    It takes a great deal of history to produce a little literature.
    Henry James (1843–1916)

    The utter helplessness of a conquered people is perhaps the most tragic feature of a civil war or any other sort of war.
    Rebecca Latimer Felton (1835–1930)

    Mining today is an affair of mathematics, of finance, of the latest in engineering skill. Cautious men behind polished desks in San Francisco figure out in advance the amount of metal to a cubic yard, the number of yards washed a day, the cost of each operation. They have no need of grubstakes.
    Merle Colby, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
