Famous quotes containing the word practise:

    Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practise deception themselves.
    Elias Canetti (b. 1905)

    Hear, then, a mortal Muse thy praise rehearse,
    In no ignoble verse;
    But such as thy own voice did practise here,
    When thy first-fruits of Poesy were given,
    To make thyself a welcome inmate there;
    While yet a young probationer,
    And candidate of Heaven.
    John Dryden (1631–1700)

They have put into practise the notion that a bad art work cleverly interpreted according to some obscure Method is more rewarding than a masterpiece wrapped in silence.
    Harold Rosenberg (1906–1978)
