Famous quotes containing the words works and/or based:
“You are always looking for already-felt emotions, just as you like to get an old pair of trousers back from the cleaners, which seem new when you dont look too closely. Artists are cleaners, dont let yourself be taken in by them. True modern works of art are made not by artists but quite simply by men.”
—Francis Picabia (18781953)
“The time must come, my friend ... when brutality and the lust for power must perish by its own sword.... For when that day comes, the world must begin to look for a new life, and it is our hope that they may find it here. For here we shall be, with their books, and their music, and a way of life based on one simple rule: Be kind.”
—Robert Riskin (18971955)
