Famous quotes containing the words years and/or final:

    Competition is. In every business, no matter how small or how large, someone is just around the corner forever trying to steal your ideas and build his success out of your imagination, struggling after that which you have toiled endless years to secure, striving to outdo you in each and every way. If such a competitor would work as hard to originate as he does to copy, he would much more quickly gain success.
    Alice Foote MacDougall (1867–1945)

    In the final analysis, “style” is art. And art is nothing more or less than various modes of stylized, dehumanized representation.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
