Monkey Wrench is also in the saying, “throw a monkey wrench into the works”, which means to deliberately sabotage a system or thing.“The world is but a canvas to the imagination” is a quote by < HREF="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_David_Thoreau" REL="nofollow">Henry David Thoreau<>, a 19th century philosopher who is a large inspiration for anarchist movements.

  2. Americans use the phrase “to monkeywrench” or “to throw a monkeywrench into the works” the same way the British use the phrase “to throw a spanner in the works.”“The world is a canvas” probably refers to the quote from Thoreau, but has also been picked up and used in different contexts by graffiti artists.
