Famous quotes containing the words crane and/or anne:

    Always and last, before the final ring
    When all the fireworks blare, begins
    A tom-tom scrimmage with a somewhere violin,
    Some cheapest echo of them all—begins.
    —Hart Crane (1899–1932)

    A cultivated style would be like a mask. Everybody knows it’s a mask, and sooner or later you must show yourself—or at least, you show yourself as someone who could not afford to show himself, and so created something to hide behind.... You do not create a style. You work, and develop yourself; your style is an emanation from your own being.
    —Katherine Anne Porter (1890–1980)
