Famous quotes containing the words department and/or state:

    In the great department store of life, baseball is the toy department.
    —Los Angeles Sportscaster. quoted in Independent Magazine (London, Sept. 28, 1991)

    The classicist, and the naturalist who has much in common with him, refuse to see in the highest works of art anything but the exercise of judgement, sensibility, and skill. The romanticist cannot be satisfied with such a normal standard; for him art is essentially irrational—an experience beyond normality, sometimes destructive of normality, and at the very least evocative of that state of wonder which is the state of mind induced by the immediately inexplicable.
    Sir Herbert Read (1893–1968)
