Famous quotes containing the words arts, college and/or visual:

    No performance is worth loss of geniality. ‘Tis a cruel price we pay for certain fancy goods called fine arts and philosophy.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We talked about and that has always been a puzzle to me
    why American men think that success is everything
    when they know that eighty percent of them are not
    going to succeed more than to just keep going and why
    if they are not why do they not keep on being
    interested in the things that interested them when
    they were college men and why American men different
    from English men do not get more interesting as they
    get older.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    To write well, to have style ... is to paint. The master faculty of style is therefore the visual memory. If a writer does not see what he describes—countrysides and figures, movements and gestures—how could he have a style, that is originality?
    Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)
