Famous quotes containing the words carnival, electric and/or daisy:

    Looks like some carnival lost a good act.
    James Gleason (1886–1959)

    Persons grouped around a fire or candle for warmth or light are less able to pursue independent thoughts, or even tasks, than people supplied with electric light. In the same way, the social and educational patterns latent in automation are those of self- employment and artistic autonomy.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    The token woman carries a bouquet of hothouse celery
    and a stenographer’s pad; she will take
    the minutes, perk the coffee, smile
    like a plastic daisy and put out
    the black cat of her sensuous anger
    to howl on the fence all night.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)
