Scene IT Lights

Famous quotes containing the words lights and/or scene:

    O would, beloved, that you lay
    Under the dock-leaves in the ground,
    While lights were paling one by one.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    This fantastic state of mind, of a humanity that has outrun its ideas, is matched by a political scene in the grotesque style, with Salvation Army methods, hallelujahs and bell-ringing and dervishlike repetition of monotonous catchwords, until everybody foams at the mouth. Fanaticism turns into a means of salvation, enthusiasm into epileptic ecstacy, politics becomes an opiate for the masses, a proletarian eschatology; and reason veils her face.
    Thomas Mann (1875–1955)
