Famous quotes containing the words cocteau and/or ballets:

    The worst tragedy for a poet is to be admired through being misunderstood.
    —Jean Cocteau (1889–1963)

    The truth is that Mozart, Pascal, Boolean algebra, Shakespeare, parliamentary government, baroque churches, Newton, the emancipation of women, Kant, Marx, and Balanchine ballets don’t redeem what this particular civilization has wrought upon the world. The white race is the cancer of human history.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
