Famous quotes containing the word disparate:

    Human life itself may be almost pure chaos, but the work of the artist—the only thing he’s good for—is to take these handfuls of confusion and disparate things, things that seem to be irreconcilable, and put them together in a frame to give them some kind of shape and meaning. Even if it’s only his view of a meaning. That’s what he’s for—to give his view of life.
    Katherine Anne Porter (1890–1980)

    As if, as if, as if the disparate halves
    Of things were waiting in a betrothal known
    To none, awaiting espousal to the sound
    Of right joining, a music of ideas, the burning
    And breeding and bearing birth of harmony,
    The final relation, the marriage of the rest.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
