Famous quotes containing the words question mark, mark and/or question:

    The bourgeois stands like a question mark,
    Speechless, like the hungry cur,
    The ancient world stands there behind him,
    A mongrel dog, afraid to stir.
    Alexander Blok (1880–1921)

    It is the mark of a mean, vulgar and ignoble spirit to dwell on the thought of food before meal times or worse to dwell on it afterwards, to discuss it and wallow in the remembered pleasures of every mouthful. Those whose minds dwell before dinner on the spit, and after on the dishes, are fit only to be scullions.
    Francis De Sales, Saint (1567–1622)

    The question is not ... if art is enough to fulfill my life, but if I am true to the path I have set for myself, if I am the best I can be in the things I do. Am I living up to the reasons I became a singer in the first place?
    Kathleen Battle (b. 1948)
