Famous quotes containing the word cather:

    Only solitary men know the full joys of friendship. Others have their family—but to a solitary and an exile his friends are everything.
    —Willa Cather (1876–1947)

    Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen. On the farm the weather was the great fact, and men’s affairs went on underneath it, as the streams creep under the ice. But in Black Hawk the scene of human life was spread out shrunken and pinched, frozen down to the bare stalk.
    —Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    Art is a concrete and personal and rather childish thing after all—no matter what people do to graft it into science and make it sociological and psychological; it is no good at all unless it is let alone to be itself—a game of make-believe, or re-production, very exciting and delightful to people who have an ear for it or an eye for it.
    —Willa Cather (1873–1947)
