Famous quotes containing the words code and/or blue:
“...I had grown up in a world that was dominated by immature age. Not by vigorous immaturity, but by immaturity that was old and tired and prudent, that loved ritual and rubric, and was utterly wanting in curiosity about the new and the strange. Its era has passed away, and the world it made has crumbled around us. Its finest creation, a code of manners, has been ridiculed and discarded.”
—Ellen Glasgow (18731945)
“They said, You have a blue guitar,
You do not play things as they are.
The man replied, Things as they are
Are changed upon a blue guitar.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
