Famous quotes containing the words arts and/or liberal:

    In a very ugly and sensible age, the arts borrow, not from life, but from each other.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    Be composed—be at ease with me—I am Walt Whitman, liberal and lusty
    as Nature,
    Not till the sun excludes you do I exclude you,
    Not till the waters refuse to glisten for you and the leaves to rustle for you, do my words refuse to glisten and rustle for you.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
