Famous quotes containing the words culture, hip and/or hop:

    What culture lacks is the taste for anonymous, innumerable germination. Culture is smitten with counting and measuring; it feels out of place and uncomfortable with the innumerable; its efforts tend, on the contrary, to limit the numbers in all domains; it tries to count on its fingers.
    Jean Dubuffet (1901–1985)

    I stir my martinis with the screw,
    four-inch and stainless steel,
    and think of my hip where it lay
    for four years like a darkness.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    I have tried being surreal, but my frogs hop right back into their realistic ponds.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
