“So thats our new flag. The thing weve been fighting forthirteen stripes for the colonies and thirteen stars in a circle for the union.”
—Lamar Trotti (18981952)
“Fashion is primitive in its insistence on exhibitionism, which withers in isolation. The catwalk fashion show with its incandescent hype is its apotheosis. A ritualized gathering of connoiseurs and the spoilt at a spotlit parade of snazzy pulchritude, it is an industrialized version of the pagan festivals of renewal. At the end of each seasonal display, a priesthood is enjoined to carry news of the omens to the masses.”
—Stephen Bayley (b. 1951)
“Power is not of a man. Wealth does not center in the person of the wealthy. Celebrity is not inherent in any personality. To be celebrated, to be wealthy, to have power requires access to major institutions.”
—C. Wright Mills (19161962)
“... You can hear the small buzz saws whine, the big saw
Caterwaul to the hills around the village
As they both bite the wood. Its all our music.
One ought as a good villager to like it.
No doubt it has a sort of prosperous sound,
And its our life.
Yes, when its not our death.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
