Famous quotes containing the word art:

    In eloquence, the great triumphs of the art are when the orator is lifted above himself; when consciously he makes himself the mere tongue of the occasion and the hour, and says what cannot but be said. Hence the term abandonment, to describe the self-surrender of the orator.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    What distinguishes modern art from the art of other ages is criticism.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)

    Any authentic work of art must start an argument between the artist and his audience.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)
