Famous quotes containing the words mechanics, fluid and/or taylor:

    It is only the impossible that is possible for God. He has given over the possible to the mechanics of matter and the autonomy of his creatures.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    Eye, gazelle, delicate wanderer,
    Drinker of horizon’s fluid line;
    Ear that suspends on a chord
    The spirit drinking timelessness;
    Touch, love, all senses;
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)

    It was palpable, all that wanting: Mother wanting something more, Dad wanting something more, everyone wanting something more. This wasn’t going to do for us fifties girls; we were going to have to change the equation even if it meant . . . abstaining from motherhood, because clearly that was where Mother got caught.
    —Anne Taylor Fleming (20th century)
