Famous quotes containing the word devices:

    The gods being always close to men perceive those who afflict others with unjust devices and do not fear the wrath of heaven.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    So that with much ado I was corrupted, and made to learn the dirty devices of this world.
    Which now I unlearn, and become, as it were, a little child again that I may enter into the Kingdom of God.
    Thomas Traherne (1636–1674)

    Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation.... Tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and trilling bolster his ego. His anxiety subsides. His inhuman void spreads monstrously like a gray vegetation.
    Jean Arp (1887–1948)
