Famous quotes containing the words shed and/or engine:

    Winters know
    Easily to shed the snow,
    And the untaught Spring is wise
    In cowslips and anemonies.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Industrial man—a sentient reciprocating engine having a fluctuating output, coupled to an iron wheel revolving with uniform velocity. And then we wonder why this should be the golden age of revolution and mental derangement.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)
