Authentic

Famous quotes containing the word authentic:

    Any authentic work of art must start an argument between the artist and his audience.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    The tension to mother the “right” way can leave a peculiar silence within mother daughter relationships—the silence of a mother’s own truth and experience. Within this silence, a daughter’s authentic voice can also fall silent. This is the silence of perfection. This silence of perfection prevents mothers from listening and learning from their daughters.
    Elizabeth Debold (20th century)

    The reason why any one refuses his assent to your opinion, or his aid to your benevolent design, is in you: he refuses to accept you as a bringer of truth, because, though you think you have it, he feels that you have it not. You have not given him the authentic sign.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
