Since the introduction of inanimate mechanism into British manufactories, man, with few exceptions, has been treated as a secondary and inferior machine; and far more attention has been given to perfect the raw materials of wood and metals than those of body and mind. -- Robert Owen

his B was mildly worrying -- R.j. Scott
Mechanism Quotes : pic 001679653
Art employs method for the symmetrical formation of beauty, as science employs it for the logical exposition of truth; but the mechanical process is, in the last, ever kept visibly distinct, while in the first it escapes from sight amid the shows of color and the curves of grace. -- Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1St Baron Lytton

Mechanism Quotes : pic 001627861
The assumption that a whole system can be made to work better through an assault on its conscious elements betrays a dangerous ignorance. This has often been the approach of those who call themselves scientists and technologists. -- Frank Herbert
Mechanism Quotes : pic 001580703
What happens: events interiors, snatch them from the cradle, from the source. I want to watch watching arrive. I want to watch arrivances. I want to find the root of needing to eat. And taste it: work of sweat / sleep. -- Helene Cixous

Mechanism Quotes : pic 000753794
If a thing can be done adequately by means of one, it is superfluous to do it by means of several; for we observe that nature does not employ two instruments [if] one suffices. -- Thomas Aquinas
Mechanism Quotes : pic 000367359
An accident, a random change, in any delicate mechanism can hardly be expected to improve it. Poking a stick into the machinery of one's watch or one's radio set will seldom make it work better. -- Theodosius Dobzhansky
Mechanism Quotes : pic 001689835
So many of man's actions appear to have no immediate consequence but, concealed, do their work until finally all catches up and forms a complex web of cause and effect. -- Tobsha Learner
