Famous quotes containing the word direct:

    Art need no longer be an account of past sensations. It can become the direct organization of more highly evolved sensations. It is a question of producing ourselves, not things that enslave us.
    Guy Debord (b. 1931)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
