Famous quotes containing the words activity and/or seismic:

    In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.
    Karl Marx (1818–1883)

    Most near, most dear, most loved and most far,
    Under the window where I often found her
    Sitting as huge as Asia, seismic with laughter,
    George Barker (b. 1913)
