Famous quotes containing the words ultimate and/or fighting:

    To love something as an artist ... means to be shaken not by its ultimate value or lack of value, but by a side of it that suddenly opens up. Where art has value it shows things that few have seen. It’s conquering, not pacifying.
    Robert Musil (1880–1942)

    It seems that fighting is a game where everybody is the loser.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)
