Famous quotes containing the words japanese and/or amateur:

    I am a lantern—
    My head a moon
    Of Japanese paper, my gold beaten skin
    Infinitely delicate and infinitely expensive.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)

    I have been reporting club meetings for four years and I am tired of hearing reviews of the books I was brought up on. I am tired of amateur performances at occasions announced to be for purposes either of enjoyment or improvement. I am tired of suffering under the pretense of acquiring culture. I am tired of hearing the word “culture” used so wantonly. I am tired of essays that let no guilty author escape quotation.
    Josephine Woodward, U.S. author. As quoted in Everyone Was Brave, ch. 3, by William L. O’Neill (1969)
