Famous quotes containing the words game, break and/or bank:

    The notion that the public accepts or rejects anything in modern art ... is merely romantic fiction.... The game is completed and the trophies distributed long before the public knows what has happened.
    Tom Wolfe (b. 1931)

    Speak, nameless, power and might;
    when will you leave me quite?
    when will you break my wings
    or leave them utterly free
    to scale heaven endlessly?
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    A self is, by its very essence, a being with a past. One must look lengthwise backwards in the stream of time in order to see the self, or its shadow, now moving with the stream, now eddying in the currents from bank to bank of its channel, and now strenuously straining onwards in the pursuit of its chosen good.
    Josiah Royce (1855–1916)
