Famous quotes containing the words command, air and/or defense:

    Children from humble families must be taught how to command just as other children must be taught how to obey.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something.
    Frank Zappa (1940–1994)

    Unlike Boswell, whose Journals record a long and unrewarded search for a self, Johnson possessed a formidable one. His life in London—he arrived twenty-five years earlier than Boswell—turned out to be a long defense of the values of Augustan humanism against the pressures of other possibilities. In contrast to Boswell, Johnson possesses an identity not because he has gone in search of one, but because of his allegiance to a set of assumptions that he regards as objectively true.
    Jeffrey Hart (b. 1930)
