The Anthony Burgess Center of the University of Angers, France, exists to honor the memory of the 20th-century English novelist Anthony Burgess. It houses a collection of books, manuscripts, scores, and other items belonging to Burgess donated by his second wife Liana, and these can be inspected and studied by visitors and scholars. The Center publishes an Anthony Burgess Newsletter from time to time.

Famous quotes containing the words anthony burgess, anthony, burgess and/or center:

    Art is dangerous. It is one of the attractions: when it ceases to be dangerous you don’t want it.
    Anthony Burgess (b. 1917)

    When will the men do something besides extend congratulations? I would rather have President Roosevelt say one word to Congress in favor of amending the Constitution to give women the suffrage than to praise me endlessly!
    —Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)

    Ah, yes, I wrote the “Purple Cow”—
    I’m sorry, now, I wrote it!
    But I can tell you, anyhow,
    I’ll kill you if you quote it.
    —Gelett Burgess (1866–1951)

    Columbus stood in his age as the pioneer of progress and enlightenment. The system of universal education is in our age the most prominent and salutary feature of the spirit of enlightenment, and it is peculiarly appropriate that the schools be made by the people the center of the day’s demonstration. Let the national flag float over every schoolhouse in the country and the exercises be such as shall impress upon our youth the patriotic duties of American citizenship.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)
