Famous quotes containing the words methods and/or abstract:

    A writer who writes, “I am alone” ... can be considered rather comical. It is comical for a man to recognize his solitude by addressing a reader and by using methods that prevent the individual from being alone. The word alone is just as general as the word bread. To pronounce it is to summon to oneself the presence of everything the word excludes.
    Maurice Blanchot (b. 1907)

    Alice grown lazy, mammoth but not fat,
    Declines upon her lost and twilight age;
    Above in the dozing leaves the grinning cat
    Quivers forever with his abstract rage....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
