Famous quotes containing the words apparatus and/or flame:

    Man is the end of nature; nothing so easily organizes itself in every part of the universe as he; no moss, no lichen is so easily born; and he takes along with him and puts out from himself the whole apparatus of society and condition extempore, as an army encamps in a desert, and where all was just now blowing sand, creates a white city in an hour, a government, a market, a place for feasting, for conversation, and for love.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The flame o’ th’ taper
    Bows toward her, and would under-peep her lids,
    To see th’ enclosed lights, now canopied
    Under these windows, white and azure laced
    With blue of heaven’s own tinct.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
