Famous quotes containing the words operation, rail, high and/or speed:
“An absolute can only be given in an intuition, while all the rest has to do with analysis. We call intuition here the sympathy by which one is transported into the interior of an object in order to coincide with what there is unique and consequently inexpressible in it. Analysis, on the contrary, is the operation which reduces the object to elements already known.”
—Henri Bergson (18591941)
“Old man, its four flights up and for what?
Your room is hardly any bigger than your bed.

stooped over the thin rail and the wornout tread.”
—Anne Sexton (19281974)
“A man is free to go up as high as he can reach up to; but I, with all my style and pep, cant get a man my equal because a girl is always judged by her mother.”
—Anzia Yezierska (c. 18811970)
“The terror of the atom age is not the violence of the new power but the speed of mans adjustment to itthe speed of his acceptance.”
