Famous quotes containing the word duncan:

    The first essential in writing about anything is that the writer should have no experience of the matter.
    —Isadora Duncan (1878–1927)

    We become lovers when we see Romeo and Juliet, and Hamlet makes us students. The blood of Duncan is upon our hands, with Timon we rage against the world, and when Lear wanders out upon the heath the terror of madness touches us. Ours is the white sinlessness of Desdemona, and ours, also, the sin of Iago.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    The only dance masters I could have were Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Walt Whitman and Nietzsche.
