Famous quotes containing the words arts, mixed and/or martial:

    Self-expression is not enough; experiment is not enough; the recording of special moments or cases is not enough. All of the arts have broken faith or lost connection with their origin and function. They have ceased to be concerned with the legitimate and permanent material of art.
    Jane Heap (c. 1880–1964)

    The millions of grains are black, white, tan, and gray,
    and mixed with quartz grains, rose and amethyst.
    Elizabeth Bishop (1911–1979)

    To a surprising extent the war-lords in shining armour, the apostles of the martial virtues, tend not to die fighting when the time comes. History is full of ignominious getaways by the great and famous.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)
