Famous quotes containing the words figure and/or black:

    All official institutions of language are repeating machines: school, sports, advertising, popular songs, news, all continually repeat the same structure, the same meaning, often the same words: the stereotype is a political fact, the major figure of ideology.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)

    So I won’t hang around in my hospital shift,
    repeating The Black Mass and all of it.
    I say Live, Live because of the sun,
    the dream, the excitable gift.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
