Horror Vacuii

Francois Rabelais
Nature abhors a vacuum.

—Hey, Pop, vot is a vacuum?
—A vacuum is a void.
—I know it's a void, but vot does dat void mean?

Charles Bragg—
Nature abhors a vacuum cleaner salesman.

Tennessee Williams
A vacuum is a hell of a lot better than some of the stuff that nature replaces it with.
