Famous quotes containing the word fake:

    Kitsch is the daily art of our time, as the vase or the hymn was for earlier generations. For the sensibility it has that arbitrariness and importance which works take on when they are no longer noticeable elements of the environment. In America kitsch is Nature. The Rocky Mountains have resembled fake art for a century.
    Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)

    The childless experts on child raising also bring tears of laughter to my eyes when they say, “I love children because they’re so honest.” There is not an agent in the CIA or the KGB who knows how to conceal the theft of food, how to fake being asleep, or how to forge a parent’s signature like a child.
    Bill Cosby (20th century)

    to become a pimp
    Or deal in fake jewelry or ruin a fine tenor voice
    For effects that bring down the house could happen to all
    But the best and the worst of us . . .
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
