Famous quotes containing the words popular culture, culture, popular, zappa and/or frank:

    Popular culture is seductive; high culture is imperious.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    I wish to speak a word for Nature, for absolute freedom and wildness, as contrasted with a freedom and culture merely civil,—to regard man as an inhabitant, or a part and parcel of Nature, rather than as a member of society. I wish to make an extreme statement, if so I may make an emphatic one, for there are enough champions of civilization: the minister and the school committee and every one of you will take care of that.
    Henry David David (1817–1862)

    But popular rage,
    Hysterica passio dragged this quarry down.
    None shared our guilt; nor did we play a part
    Upon a painted stage when we devoured his heart.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something.
    —Frank Zappa (1940–1994)

    Sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand.
    Donn Pierce, U.S. screenwriter, Frank R. Pierson, and Stuart Rosenberg. Luke Jackson (Paul Newman)
