Famous quotes containing the word advanced:

    Knowledge is a comfortable and necessary retreat and shelter for us in an advanced age; and if we do not plant it while young, it will give us no shade when we are old.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    Only conservatives believe that subversion is still being carried on in the arts and that society is being shaken by it.... Advanced art today is no longer a cause—it contains no moral imperative. There is no virtue in clinging to principles and standards, no vice in selling or in selling out.
    Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)

    Having advanced to the limit of boldness, child, you have stumbled against the lofty pedestal of Justice.
    Sophocles (497–406/5 B.C.)
