Famous quotes containing the words fair, frieze and/or art:

    When it is evening, you say, It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ And in the morning, It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 16:2,3.

    And the serial continues:
    Pain, expiation, delight, more pain,
    A frieze that lengthens continually, in the lucky way
    Friezes do, and no plot is produced,
    Nothing you could hang an identifying question on.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    “Modernity” signifies the transitory, the fugitive, the contingent, the half of art of which the other half is the eternal and the immutable.
    Charles Baudelaire (1821–1867)
