Famous quotes containing the words susan sontag, foundation, literary and/or sontag:

    Camp is a vision of the world in terms of style—but a particular kind of style. It is the love of the exaggerated, the “off,” of things-being-what-they-are-not.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    To apologize is to lay the foundation for a future offense.
    Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914)

    Whenever the literary German dives into a sentence, that is the last you are going to see of him till he emerges on the other side of his Atlantic with his verb in his mouth.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Unfortunately, moral beauty in art—like physical beauty in a person—is extremely perishable. It is nowhere so durable as artistic or intellectual beauty. Moral beauty has a tendency to decay very rapidly into sententiousness or untimeliness.
    —Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
