Famous quotes containing the words selections, poetry and/or lamont:

    Artists, whatever their medium, make selections from the abounding materials of life, and organize these selections into works that are under the control of the artist.... In relation to the inclusiveness and literally endless intricacy of life, art is arbitrary, symbolic and abstracted. That is its value and the source of its own kind of order and coherence.
    Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)

    Before now poetry has taken notice
    Of wars, and what are wars but politics
    Transformed from chronic to acute and bloody?
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Who has ever stopped to think of the divinity of Lamont Cranston?
    Imamu Amiri Baraka (b. 1934)
