Famous quotes containing the words finish and/or matt:

    A seashell should be the crest of England, not only because it represents a power built on the waves, but also the hard finish of the men. The Englishman is finished like a cowry or a murex.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Everything that ever walked or crawled on the face of the earth, swum the depths of the ocean or soared through the skies left its imprint here.
    Robert M. Fresco, and Jack Arnold. Dr. Matt Hastings (John Agar)
