Famous quotes containing the words desert and/or operation:

    The change of Philomel, by the barbarous king
    So rudely forced: yet there the nightingale
    Filled all the desert with inviolable voice
    And still she cried, and still the world pursues,
    “Jug Jug” to dirty ears.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)
