Famous quotes containing the words style and/or expressive:

    Everything ponderous, viscous, and solemnly clumsy, all long- winded and boring types of style are developed in profuse variety among Germans—forgive me the fact that even Goethe’s prose, in its mixture of stiffness and elegance, is no exception, being a reflection of the “good old time” to which it belongs, and a reflection of German taste at a time when there still was a “German taste”Ma rococo taste in moribus et artibus.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Coming on such an ancient human trace
    Seems as expressive of the human race
    As meeting someone living, face to face.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
