Famous quotes with Seismograph

  • I'd rather be a lightning rod than a seismograph.
    Ken Kesey
  • Most of us balk at her soporific rigmaroles, her echolaliac incantations, her half-witted-sounding catalogues on numbers; most of us read her less and less. Yet, remembering especially her early work, we are still always aware of her presence in the background of contemporary literature— and we picture her as the great pyramidal Buddha of Jo Davidson's statue of her, eternally and placidly ruminating the gradual developments of the process of being, registering the vibrations of a psychological country like some august human seismograph whose charts we haven't the training to read.
    Gertrude Stein
  • I'd rather be a lightning rod than a seismograph.
    Ken Kesey
