Famous quotes containing the words works and/or major:

    Every man is in a state of conflict, owing to his attempt to reconcile himself and his relationship with life to his conception of harmony. This conflict makes his soul a battlefield, where the forces that wish this reconciliation fight those that do not and reject the alternative solutions they offer. Works of art are attempts to fight out this conflict in the imaginative world.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    Never be afraid to meet to the hilt the demand of either work or friendship—two of life’s major assets.
    Eleanor Robson Belmont (1878–1979)
