Famous quotes containing the word dig:

    We didn’t come to dig in Egypt for medals. Much more is learned from studying bits of broken pottery than from all the sensational finds. Our job is to increase the sum of human knowledge of the past, not to satisfy our own curiosity.
    John L. Balderston (1899–1954)

    “That corpse you planted last year in your garden,
    “Has it begun to sprout? Will it bloom this year?
    “Or has the sudden frost disturbed its bed?
    “O keep the Dog far hence, that’s friend to men,
    “Or with his nails he’ll dig it up again!
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    If we make a couple of discoveries here and there we need not believe things will go on like this for ever.... Just as we hit water when we dig in the earth, so we discover the incomprehensible sooner or later.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
