Famous quotes containing the words arts, royal and/or academy:

    Self-expression is not enough; experiment is not enough; the recording of special moments or cases is not enough. All of the arts have broken faith or lost connection with their origin and function. They have ceased to be concerned with the legitimate and permanent material of art.
    Jane Heap (c. 1880–1964)

    Dearest dealer,
    I with my royal straight flush,
    love you so for your wild card,
    that untamable, eternal, gut-driven, ha-ha
    and lucky love.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    I realized early on that the academy and the literary world alike—and I don’t think there really is a distinction between the two—are always dominated by fools, knaves, charlatans and bureaucrats. And that being the case, any human being, male or female, of whatever status, who has a voice of her or his own, is not going to be liked.
    Harold Bloom (b. 1930)
