Famous quotes containing the words fails and/or attempt:

    I am dead against art’s being self-expression. I see an inherent failure in any story which fails to detach itself from the author—detach itself in the sense that a well-blown soap-bubble detaches itself from the bowl of the blower’s pipe and spherically takes off into the air as a new, whole, pure, iridescent world. Whereas the ill-blown bubble, as children know, timidly adheres to the bowl’s lip, then either bursts or sinks flatly back again.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    Religion, oh, just another of those numerous failures resulting from an attempt to popularize art.
    Ezra Pound (1885–1972)
