Famous quotes containing the words society and/or knowledge:
“The product of the artist has become less important than the fact of the artist. We wish to absorb this person. We wish to devour someone who has experienced the tragic. In our society this person is much more important than anything he might create.”
—David Mamet (b. 1947)
“On a huge hill,
Cragged, and steep, Truth stands, and he that will
Reach her, about must, and about must go;
And what the hills suddenness resists, win so;
Yet strive so, that before age, deaths twilight,
Thy Soul rest, for none can work in that night.
To will, implies delay, therefore now do:
Hard deeds, the bodys pains; hard knowledge too
The minds endeavours reach, and mysteries
Are like the Sun, dazzling, yet plain to all eyes.”
—John Donne (15721631)
