Writing a book of poetry is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo.
If you understood a business perfectly and the future of the business, you would need very little in the way of a margin of safety. So, the more vulnerable the business is, assuming you still want to invest in it, the larger margin of safety you'd need. If you're driving a truck across a bridge that says it holds 10,000 pounds and you've got a 9,800 pound vehicle, if the bridge is 6 inches above the crevice it covers, you may feel okay, but if it's over the Grand Canyon, you may feel you want a little larger margin of safety...warren buffett
I could throw 56-pound words clear across the Grand Canyon. As a matter of course, I went into politics.henry fountain ashurst
Because Arizona has two things people will drive thousands of miles to see Grand Canyon and the Petrified Forest. They can't get there without roads.carl hayden
"As for the flood carving Grand Canyon, why don’t they explain to us why the top of the Canyon is 4,000ft higher than where the river (Colorado River) enters the Canyon?

It has been well said that an author who expects results from a first novel is in a position similar to that of a man who drops a rose petal down the Grand Canyon of Arizona and listens for the echo.
A great many film stars perched on unstable ravine edges in the Canyon systems of Los Angeles will, like the cemeteries there, eventually slide down to join their unfortunate fellows in the Canyon floors, with mud, cars, and embalmed or living film stars in one glorious muddy mass. We should not lend our talents to creating such spectacular catastrophes...bill mollison
I cruise the Canyon to get some breeze With Hidden Treasures up my sleeve I like the light and hate the heat But I'll lick the blood right off your streetkaty rose
