Famous quotes containing the words axis and/or spin:

    A book is not an autonomous entity: it is a relation, an axis of innumerable relations. One literature differs from another, be it earlier or later, not because of the texts but because of the way they are read: if I could read any page from the present time—this one, for instance—as it will be read in the year 2000, I would know what the literature of the year 2000 would be like.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    In tragic life, God wot,
    No villain need be! Passions spin the plot:
    We are betrayed by what is false within.
    George Meredith (1828–1909)
