Famous quotes containing the words guns and/or machine:

    Again the guns disturbed the hour,
    Roaring their readiness to avenge,
    As far inland a Stourton Tower,
    And Camelot, and starlit Stonehenge.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    The cycle of the machine is now coming to an end. Man has learned much in the hard discipline and the shrewd, unflinching grasp of practical possibilities that the machine has provided in the last three centuries: but we can no more continue to live in the world of the machine than we could live successfully on the barren surface of the moon.
    Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)
