Famous quotes containing the words fashion and/or group:

    He who goes against the fashion is himself its slave.
    Logan Pearsall Smith (1865–1946)

    The poet who speaks out of the deepest instincts of man will be heard. The poet who creates a myth beyond the power of man to realize is gagged at the peril of the group that binds him. He is the true revolutionary: he builds a new world.
