Famous quotes containing the words blockers and/or channel:

    Frances Stevens: Mother, this is why I’ve had to spend half my life running around the world after you—to keep men like this away from you.
    Mrs. Stevens: Well after this, let me run my own interference. It looks like the blockers are having all the fun.
    John Michael Hayes (b. 1919)

    There is the falsely mystical view of art that assumes a kind of supernatural inspiration, a possession by universal forces unrelated to questions of power and privilege or the artist’s relation to bread and blood. In this view, the channel of art can only become clogged and misdirected by the artist’s concern with merely temporary and local disturbances. The song is higher than the struggle.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
