Famous quotes containing the words material and/or plant:

    Any so-called material thing that you want is merely a symbol: you want it not for itself, but because it will content your spirit for the moment.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    They do not live in the world,
    Are not in time and space.
    From birth to death hurled
    No word do they have, not one
    To plant a foot upon,
    Were never in any place.
    Edwin Muir (1887–1959)
