Famous quotes containing the words arts, fictional and/or martial:

    Hardly any human being is capable of pursuing two professions or two arts rightly.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    One of the proud joys of the man of letters—if that man of letters is an artist—is to feel within himself the power to immortalize at will anything he chooses to immortalize. Insignificant though he may be, he is conscious of possessing a creative divinity. God creates lives; the man of imagination creates fictional lives which may make a profound and as it were more living impression on the world’s memory.
    Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)

    Inspire the Vocal Brass, Inspire;
    The World is past its Infant Age:
    Arms and Honour,
    Arms and Honour,
    Set the Martial Mind on Fire,
    And kindle Manly Rage.
    John Dryden (1631–1700)
