Famous quotes containing the words structure and/or gross:

    Communism is a proposition to structure the world more reasonably, a proposition for changing the world. As such, we have to analyze it and, if we deem it reasonable, act upon it.
    Friedrich Dürrenmatt (1921–1990)

    How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable
    Seem to me all the uses of this world!

    Possess it merely.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
