Famous quotes containing the words cells, embryonic and/or stem:

    They are sworn enemies of lyric poetry.
    In prison they accompany the jailer,
    Enter cells to hear confessions.
    Their short-end comes down
    When you least expect it.
    Charles Simic (b. 1938)

    Quintilian [educational writer in Rome around A.D. 100] thought that the earliest years of the child’s life were crucial. Education should start earlier than age seven, within the family. It should not be so hard as to give the child an aversion to learning. Rather, these early lessons would take the form of play—that embryonic notion of kindergarten.
    C. John Sommerville (20th century)

    The lotus’ stem is as long as the depth of water,
    So men’s height is just as great as their inner strength.
    Tiruvalluvar (c. 5th century A.D.)
