Famous quotes containing the word row:

    Row after row with strict impunity
    The headstones yield their names to the element,
    The wind whirrs without recollection....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    One can describe a landscape in many different words and sentences, but one would not normally cut up a picture of a landscape and rearrange it in different patterns in order to describe it in different ways. Because a photograph is not composed of discrete units strung out in a linear row of meaningful pieces, we do not understand it by looking at one element after another in a set sequence. The photograph is understood in one act of seeing; it is perceived in a gestalt.
    Joshua Meyrowitz, U.S. educator, media critic. “The Blurring of Public and Private Behaviors,” No Sense of Place: The Impact of Electronic Media on Social Behavior, Oxford University Press (1985)

    You have a row of dominoes set up; you knock over the first one, and what will happen to the last one is that it will go over very quickly.
    Dwight D. Eisenhower (1890–1969)
