Fiction is like a spider's web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners. Often the attachment is scarcely perceptible; Shakespeare 's plays, for instance, seem to hang there complete by themselves. But when the web is pulled askew, hooked up at the edge, torn in the middle, one remembers that these webs are not spun in midair by incorporeal creatures, but are the work of suffering human beings, and are attached to the grossly material things, like health and money and the houses we live in.
Oh, what a tangled web do parents weave When they think that their children are na|«ve.
In the near future, the web is going to be the master copy of human knowledge. We need to figure out ways to use that knowledge.
I know of nothing more terrible than the poor creatures who have learned too much. Instead of the sound powerful judgement which would probably have grown up if they had learned nothing, their thoughts creep timidly and hypnotically after words, principles and formulae, constantly by the same paths. What they have acquired is a spider's web of thoughts too weak to furnish sure supports, but complicated enough to provide confusion.ernst mach
It’s a little too early to play curmudgeon and complain that the kids today don’t have the patience to read long web pages.mark rosenfelder
If that thy fame with ev'ry toy be pos'd, 'Tis a thin web, which poysonous fancies make; But the great souldier's honour was compos'd Of thicker stuf, which would endure a shake. Wisdom picks friends; civility plays the rest; A toy shunn'd cleanly passeth with the best.George Herbert
This day we fashion Destiny, our web of Fate we spin.john greenleaf whittier
Darl said, "So we will make a lot of money with tiny internet ads, like in the back of newspapers, and down at the bottom of web pages and one of those small blocks that says 'powered by Pointserve.' He changed our business model, tiny ads did not work, he left after about 8 months, and we went back to our original business model, and he went to SCO."darl mcbride
O, what a tangled web we weave, When first we practise to deceive!walter scott
Much like a subtle spider, which doth sit In middle of her web, which spreadeth wide: If aught do touch the utmost thread of it, She feels it instantly on every side.
O what a tangled web we weave / When first we practise to deceive.
Mightily wove they / the web of fate, / While Bralund's towns / were trembling all; / And there the golden / threads they wove, / And in the moon's hall / fast they made them.
Behind this web of semantic.(and more than semantic) confusion [regarding the definition of thought reform] lies an image of "brainwashing" as an all-powerful, irresistible, unfathomable, and magical method of achieving total control over the human mind. It is of course none of these things, and this loose usage makes the word a rallying point for fear, resentment, urges toward submission, justification for failure, irresponsible accusation, and for a wide gamut of emotional extremism.
Perl is the most popular web programming language. Over a million people program with Perl. That is approximately one Perl programmer for every resident of Hyderabad, Pakistan or Donetsk, Ukraine.
The goal of world community with peace , liberty , and justice for all; respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
I have only found the key to the cipher of the Christian religion, only extricated its true meaning from the web of contradictions and delusions called theology .
By putting the means of production into the hands of the masses but withholding from those same masses any ownership over the product of their work, web 2.0 provides an incredibly efficient mechanism to harvest the economic value of the free labor provided by the very, very many and concentrate it into the hands of the very, very few.nicholas g. carr
Federal District Court Judge Jeffrey White ordered Wikileaks's domain name registrar to disable its web address. That was akin to shutting down a newspaper because of objections to one article. The First Amendment requires the government to act only in the most dire circumstances when it regulates free expression.
It wasn't our intention to shut down the web site. Our intention was to remove the documents.
Doing research on the web is like using a library assembled piecemeal by pack rats and vandalized nightly.
Wikipedia is, for many users, the primary site for information on the web (...) At present, Wikipedia hosts more than 2.9 million English-language articles, with a total of 13 million articles available in more than 250 different languages (...) Wikipedia is the second-most searched site on the Internet, behind only Google.
The ultimate goal of the web is to support and improve our web-like existence in the world . We clump into family , association, and companies.
