Famous quotes containing the word diffuse:

    The genius of reading and of gardening are antagonistic, like resinous and vitreous electricity. One is concentrative in sparks and shocks: the other is diffuse strength; so that each disqualifies its workman for the other’s duties.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
