Famous quotes with Concoction

  • l'un des plus meurtrière et destructrice concoction plus venimeux est créé en mélangeant faux orgueil de l'ignorance et de la puissance. malheureusement il ya plus de victimes de cette formulation toxique que le poison lui-même.
    Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
  • Just the other day, I was in my neighborhood Starbucks, waiting for the post office to open. I was enjoying a chocolatey cafe mocha when it occurred to me that to drink a mocha is to gulp down the entire history of the New World. From the Spanish exportation of Aztec cacao, and the Dutch invention of the chemical process for making cocoa, on down to the capitalist empire of Hershey, PA, and the lifestyle marketing of Seattle's Starbucks, the modern mocha is a bittersweet concoction of imperialism, genocide, invention, and consumerism served with whipped cream on top. No wonder it costs so much.
    Sarah Vowell
