Famous quotes containing the word play:
“Of what use, however, is a general certainty that an insect will not walk with his head hindmost, when what you need to know is the play of inward stimulus that sends him hither and thither in a network of possible paths?”
—George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
“There has been in our time a lack of reliance on language and a lack of experimentation which are frightening to anyone who sees them as symptoms. We know the phenomenon of stage-fright: it holds the player shivering, incapable of speech or action. Perhaps there is an audience-fright which the play can feel, which leaves him with these incapacities.”
—Muriel Rukeyser (19131980)
“Ive come close to matching the feeling of that night in 1944 in music, when I first heard Diz and Bird, but Ive never got there.... Im always looking for it, listening and feeling for it, though, trying to always feel it in and through the music I play every day.”
—Miles Davis (19261991)
