Famous quotes containing the word ceremony:

    Every ceremony or rite has a value if it is performed without alteration. A ceremony is a book in which a great deal is written. Anyone who understands can read it. One rite often contains more than a hundred books.
    George Gurdjieff (c. 1877–1949)

    Friends, both the imaginary ones you build for yourself out of phrases taken from a living writer, or real ones from college, and relatives, despite all the waste of ceremony and fakery and the fact that out of an hour of conversation you may have only five minutes in which the old entente reappears, are the only real means for foreign ideas to enter your brain.
    Nicholson Baker (b. 1957)

    But ceremony never did conceal,
    Save to the silly eye, which all allows,
    How much we are the woods we wander in.
    Richard Wilbur (b. 1921)
