Paving Quotes (2 quotes)
I sometimes think there is a malign force loose in the universe that is the social equivalent of cancer, and its plastic. It infiltrates everything. Its metastasis. It gets into every single pore of productive life. I mean there wont be anything that isnt made of plastic before long. Theyll be paving the roads with plastic before theyre done. Out bodies, our skeletons, will be replaced with plastic.
It may be unpopular and out-of-date to saybut I do not think that a scientific result which gives us a better understanding of the world and makes it more harmonious in our eyes should be held in lower esteem than, say, an invention which reduces the cost of paving roads, or improves household plumbing.
