Famous quotes containing the words economics, stockholm and/or school:
“The new sound-sphere is global. It ripples at great speed across languages, ideologies, frontiers and races.... The economics of this musical esperanto is staggering. Rock and pop breed concentric worlds of fashion, setting and life-style. Popular music has brought with it sociologies of private and public manner, of group solidarity. The politics of Eden come loud.”
—George Steiner (b. 1929)
“He was begotten in the galley and born under a gun. Every hair was a rope yarn, every finger a fish-hook, every tooth a marline-spike, and his blood right good Stockholm tar.”
“And this school wasnt keeping anymore,
Unless for penitents who took their seat
Upon its doorsteps as at mercys feet
To make up for a lack of meditation.”
—Robert Frost (18741963)
