Famous quotes containing the words surface and/or leaf:

    A society which allows an abominable event to burgeon from its dungheap and grow on its surface is like a man who lets a fly crawl unheeded across his face or saliva dribble unstemmed from his mouth—either epileptic or dead.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    On leaf of palm, on sedge-wrought roll;
    On plastic clay and leathern scroll,
    Man wrote his thoughts; the ages passed,
    And lo! the Press was found at last!
    John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892)
