Famous quotes containing the words art and, art and/or culture:

    Every art and every inquiry, and similarly every action and choice, is thought to aim at some good; and for this reason the good has rightly been declared to be that at which all things aim.
    Aristotle (384–322 B.C.)

    What distinguishes modern art from the art of other ages is criticism.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)

    Our culture has become something that is completely and utterly in love with its parent. It’s become a notion of boredom that is bought and sold, where nothing will happen except that people will become more and more terrified of tomorrow, because the new continues to look old, and the old will always look cute.
    Malcolm McLaren (b. 1946)
