Category Arts

Famous quotes containing the words arts and/or category:

    I should say that the most prominent scientific men of our country, and perhaps of this age, are either serving the arts and not pure science, or are performing faithful but quite subordinate labors in particular departments. They make no steady and systematic approaches to the central fact.... There is wanting constant and accurate observation with enough of theory to direct and discipline it. But, above all, there is wanting genius.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I see no reason for calling my work poetry except that there is no other category in which to put it.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)
