Famous quotes containing the words fenton and/or james:

    The writing of a poem is like a child throwing stones into a mineshaft. You compose first, then you listen for the reverberation.
    —James Fenton (b. 1949)

    The absolute things, the last things, the overlapping things, are the truly philosophic concerns; all superior minds feel seriously about them, and the mind with the shortest views is simply the mind of the more shallow man.
    —William James (1842–1910)
