Famous quotes containing the words disaster and/or air:

    The disaster ... is not the money, although the money will be missed. The disaster is the disrespect—this belief that the arts are dispensable, that they’re not critical to a culture’s existence.
    Twyla Tharp (b. 1941)

    Oh none too soon through the air white and dry
    Will the clear announcer’s voice
    Beat like a dove, and you and I

    From the heart’s anarch and responsible town
    Return by subway-mouth to life again,
    Bearing the morning papers,
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)
