Famous quotes containing the word transform:
“Bees plunder the flowers here and there, but afterward they make of them honey, which is all theirs; it is no longer thyme or marjoram. Even so with the pieces borrowed from others; one will transform and blend them to make a work that is all ones own, that is, ones judgement. Education, work, and study aim only at forming this.”
—Michel de Montaigne (15331592)
