Famous quotes containing the word psyche:

    Celestial Cupid her fam’d son advanc’t,
    Holds his dear Psyche sweet intranc’t
    After her wandring labours long,
    Till free consent the gods among
    Make her his eternal Bride,
    And from her fair unspotted side
    Two blissful twins are to be born,
    Youth and Joy; so Jove hath sworn,
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    The experience of the gangster as an experience of art is universal to Americans. There is almost nothing we understand better or react to more readily or with quicker intelligence.... In ways that we do not easily or willingly define, the gangster speaks for us, expressing that part of the American psyche which rejects the qualities and the demands of modern life, which rejects “Americanism” itself.
    Robert Warshow (1917–1955)
