Famous quotes containing the words carrier and/or mortar:

    When toddlers are unable to speak about urgent matters, they must resort to crying or screaming. This happens even with adults. The voice is the carrier of emotion, and when speech fails us, we need to cry out in whatever form we can to convey our meaning. Often, what passes for negativism is really the toddler’s desperate effort to make herself understood.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)

    For the first time I’m content to see
    What poor mortar and bricks
    I have to build with, knowing that I can
    Never in seventy years be more a man
    Than now a sack of meal upon two sticks.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
