The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship.
The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.
Laws are spider webs through which the big flies pass and the little ones get caught.
Honore de Balzac
The next time you see a spider web, please, pause and look a little closer. You'll be seeing one of the most high-performance materials known to man.
I drove from Naples to the Amalfi coast in an Alpha Romeo 1969 Spider, which was lovely. There have been lots of movies made down there, and I felt a bit like James Bond - the driving is quite hairy. The locals have mopeds, but you wouldn't catch me on a bike on those roads. A tank would be safer!
One cannot separate the spider web's form from the way in which it originated.
Look at spiders. They use about eight different properties of silk for different functions. The spider is like a multimaterial 3D printer.

Spiders keep me awake at night. If I see one that's too big to get under a glass, there will be big problems. I'll spend the rest of the day feeling like I'm being terrorised by this missing spider.
I grew up as a child living 'Red Dawn.' I was leaping out of spider holes, mowing down Russkies at the age of eight.
C. Thomas Howell
