Famous quotes containing the words arts and, literature and/or arts:

    The present is an age of talkers, and not of doers; and the reason is, that the world is growing old. We are so far advanced in the Arts and Sciences, that we live in retrospect, and dote on past achievement.
    William Hazlitt (1778–1830)

    Scholarship cannot do without literature.... It needs literature to float it, to set it current, to authenticate it to all the race, to get it out of closets and into the brains of men who stir abroad.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    ... the creator of the new composition in the arts is an outlaw until he is a classic.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
