Crown Literary Society

Famous quotes containing the words crown, literary and/or society:

    Or shatter too with him my curious frame:
    And let these wither, so that he may die,
    Though set with Skill and chosen out with Care.
    That they, while Thou on both their Spoils dost tread,
    May crown thy Feet, that could not crown thy Head.
    Andrew Marvell (1621–1678)

    A guide book is addressed to those who plan to follow the traveler, doing what he has done, but more selectively. A travel book, in its purest, is addressed to those who do not plan to follow the traveler at all, but who require the exotic or comic anomalies, wonders and scandals of the literary form romance which their own place or time cannot entirely supply.
    Paul Fussell (b. 1924)

    Before abstraction everything is one, but one like chaos; after abstraction everything is united again, but this union is a free binding of autonomous, self-determined beings. Out of a mob a society has developed, chaos has been transformed into a manifold world.
    Novalis [Friedrich Von Hardenberg] (1772–1801)
