Lucifer in Popular Culture Entertainment

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

    There is something terribly wrong with a culture inebriated by noise and gregariousness.
    George Steiner (b. 1929)

    Now the runaways would run no more and never
    again would their hair be tangled into diamonds,
    never again their shoes worn down to a laugh,
    never the bed falling down into purgatory
    to let them climb in after
    with their Lucifer kicking.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Resorts advertised for waitresses, specifying that they “must appear in short clothes or no engagement.” Below a Gospel Guide column headed, “Where our Local Divines Will Hang Out Tomorrow,” was an account of spirited gun play at the Bon Ton. In Jeff Winney’s California Concert Hall, patrons “bucked the tiger” under the watchful eye of Kitty Crawhurst, popular “lady” gambler.
