Famous quotes containing the words contemporary and/or art:

    I have the strong impression that contemporary middle-class women do seem prone to feelings of inadequacy. We worry that we do not measure up to some undefined level, some mythical idealized female standard. When we see some women juggling with apparent ease, we suspect that we are grossly inadequate for our own obvious struggles.
    Faye J. Crosby (20th century)

    The art of medicine in the season lies:
    Wine given in season oft will benefit,
    Which out of season injures.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
