Famous quotes containing the word arts:

    I haven’t seen so much tippy-toeing around since the last time I went to the ballet. When members of the arts community were asked this week about one of their biggest benefactors, Philip Morris, and its requests that they lobby the New York City Council on the company’s behalf, the pas de deux of self- justification was so painstakingly choreographed that it constituted a performance all by itself.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    On every hand we observe a truly wise practice, in education, in morals, and in the arts of life, the embodied wisdom of many an ancient philosopher.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Eliot dead, you saying,
    “And who is left to understand my jokes?
    My old Brother in the arts . . . and besides, he was a smash of
    poet.”
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)
