Famous quotes containing the words laboratory and/or appleton:

    Today, each artist must undertake to invent himself, a lifelong act of creation that constitutes the essential content of the artist’s work. The meaning of art in our time flows from this function of self-creation. Art is the laboratory for making new men.
    Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)

    Good Americans, when they die, go to Paris.
    —Thomas Appleton (1812–1884)
