Famous quotes containing the words metals and/or precious:

    When human beings have been fascinated by the contemplation of their own hearts, the more intricate biological pattern of the female has become a model for the artist, the mystic, and the saint. When mankind turns instead to what can be done, altered, built, invented, in the outer world, all natural properties of men, animals, or metals become handicaps to be altered rather than clues to be followed.
    Margaret Mead (1901–1978)

    Let none admire
    That riches grow in hell; that soil may best
    Deserve the precious bane.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
