Famous quotes containing the words fissure and/or superior:
“that part of him that was left behind convulsed in undignified
Writhed like lightning, and was gone
Into the black hole, the earth-lipped fissure in the wall-front,”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
“The momentary charge at Balaklava, in obedience to a blundering command, proving what a perfect machine the soldier is, has, properly enough, been celebrated by a poet laureate; but the steady, and for the most part successful, charge of this man, for some years, against the legions of Slavery, in obedience to an infinitely higher command, is as much more memorable than that as an intelligent and conscientious man is superior to a machine. Do you think that that will go unsung?”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
