Famous quotes containing the word cather:

    Art, it seems to me, should simplify. That, indeed, is very nearly the whole of the higher artistic process; finding what conventions of form and what detail one can do without and yet preserve the spirit of the whole—so that all that one has suppressed and cut away is there to the reader’s consciousness as much as if it were in type on the page.
    —Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    Nothing is far and nothing is near, if one desires. The world is little, people are little, human life is little. There is only one big thing—desire.
    —Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    His misfortune was that he loved youth—he was weak to it, it kindled him. If there was one eager eye, one doubting, critical mind, one lively curiosity in a whole lecture-room full of commonplace boys and girls, he was its servant. That ardour could command him. It hadn’t worn out with years, this responsiveness, any more than the magnetic currents wear out; it had nothing to do with Time.
    —Willa Cather (1873–1947)
