Famous quotes containing the words engines and/or merlin:

    America is like one of those old-fashioned six-cylinder truck engines that can be missing two sparkplugs and have a broken flywheel and have a crankshaft that’s 5000 millimeters off fitting properly, and two bad ball-bearings, and still runs. We’re in that kind of situation. We can have substantial parts of the population committing suicide, and still run and look fairly good.
    Thomas McGuane (b. 1939)

    Of Merlin wise I learned a song,—
    Sing it low, or sing it loud,
    It is mightier than the strong,
    And punishes the proud.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
