Famous quotes containing the words columbia and/or british:
“The young women, what can they not learn, what can they not achieve, with Columbia University annex thrown open to them? In this great outlook for womens broader intellectual development I see the great sunburst of the future.”
—M. E. W. Sherwood (18261903)
“Semantically, taste is rich and confusing, its etymology as odd and interesting as that of style. But while stylederiving from the stylus or pointed rod which Roman scribes used to make marks on wax tabletssuggests activity, taste is more passive.... Etymologically, the word we use derives from the Old French, meaning touch or feel, a sense that is preserved in the current Italian word for a keyboard, tastiera.”
—Stephen Bayley, British historian, art critic. Taste: The Story of an Idea, Taste: The Secret Meaning of Things, Random House (1991)
