Exceptions

Famous quotes containing the word exceptions:

    Every declaration of love contains an unstated list of exceptions and demands.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    ... people were so ridiculous with their illusions, carrying their fools’ caps unawares, thinking their own lies opaque while everybody else’s were transparent, making themselves exceptions to everything, as if when all the world looked yellow under a lamp they alone were rosy.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    For true poetry, complete poetry, consists in the harmony of contraries. Hence, it is time to say aloud—and it is here above all that exceptions prove the rule—that everything that exists in nature exists in art.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
