Famous quotes containing the words company and/or express:

    All I can tell you with certainty is that I, for one, have no self, and that I am unwilling or unable to perpetrate upon myself the joke of a self.... What I have instead is a variety of impersonations I can do, and not only of myself—a troupe of players that I have internalised, a permanent company of actors that I can call upon when a self is required.... I am a theater and nothing more than a theater.
    Philip Roth (b. 1933)

    To live life well is to express life poorly; if one expresses life too well, one is living it no longer.
    Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962)
