Famous quotes containing the words publication and/or serial:

    I would rather have as my patron a host of anonymous citizens digging into their own pockets for the price of a book or a magazine than a small body of enlightened and responsible men administering public funds. I would rather chance my personal vision of truth striking home here and there in the chaos of publication that exists than attempt to filter it through a few sets of official, honorably public-spirited scruples.
    John Updike (b. 1932)

    And the serial continues:
    Pain, expiation, delight, more pain,
    A frieze that lengthens continually, in the lucky way
    Friezes do, and no plot is produced,
    Nothing you could hang an identifying question on.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
