Famous quotes containing the word independent:

    So far as I am individually concerned, & independent of my pocket, it is my earnest desire to write those sort of books which are said to “fail.”
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    There is in fact no such thing as art for art’s sake, art that stands above classes, art that is detached from or independent of politics. Proletarian literature and art are part of the whole proletarian revolutionary cause.
    Mao Zedong (1893–1976)

    [My father] was a lazy man. It was the days of independent incomes, and if you had an independent income you didn’t work. You weren’t expected to. I strongly suspect that my father would not have been particularly good at working anyway. He left our house in Torquay every morning and went to his club. He returned, in a cab, for lunch, and in the afternoon went back to the club, played whist all afternoon, and returned to the house in time to dress for dinner.
    Agatha Christie (1891–1976)
