Famous quotes containing the words start and/or air:

    In art, one idea is as good as another. If one takes the idea of trembling, for instance, all of a sudden most art starts to tremble. Michelangelo starts to tremble. El Greco starts to tremble. All the Impressionists start to tremble.
    Willem De Kooning (b. 1904)

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

    Bearing the morning papers,
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)
