Famous quotes containing the words ant, yellow and/or subterranean:

    I am not afraid of the priests in the long-run. Scientific method is the white ant which will slowly but surely destroy their fortifications. And the importance of scientific method in modern practical life—always growing and increasing—is the guarantee for the gradual emancipation of the ignorant upper and lower classes, the former of whom especially are the strength of the priests.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    a star
    called Wormwood rose and flickered, shattering
    bent light over the dead boiling up in the ground,
    the biting yellow their corrupted lives
    streaming to war, denying all our words.
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    The subterranean miner that works in us all, how can one tell whither leads his shaft by the ever shifting, muffled sound of his pick?
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)
