Famous quotes containing the words devices and/or storage:

    So that with much ado I was corrupted, and made to learn the dirty devices of this world.
    Which now I unlearn, and become, as it were, a little child again that I may enter into the Kingdom of God.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)

    Many of our houses, both public and private, with their almost innumerable apartments, their huge halls and their cellars for the storage of wines and other munitions of peace, appear to me extravagantly large for their inhabitants. They are so vast and magnificent that the latter seem to be only vermin which infest them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
