“Man's tongue is soft, and bone doth lack; yet a stroke therewith may break a man's back.”
“Stroke follow strokes, the sparkling ingot shines,/ Flows the red slag, the lengthening bar refines;/ Cold waves, immersed, the glowing mass congeal,/ And turn to adamant the hissing Steel.”
“I really don't look at what the person has written. I concentrate on the stroke marks.”
“He had not an ounce of superfluous flesh on his bones, and leanness goes a great way towards gentility.”
“She had always called me, after those strokes. Those strokes were all documented. Then she had a major stroke just a few days after she signed, and she has never been home since.”

Friedrich Max Muller
