Famous quotes containing the word mccarthy:

    A society person who is enthusiastic about modern painting or Truman Capote is already half a traitor to his class. It is middle-class people who, quite mistakenly, imagine that a lively pursuit of the latest in reading and painting will advance their status in the world.
    —Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    —Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    ... friendship ... is essential to intellectuals. You can date the evolving life of a mind, like the age of a tree, by the rings of friendship formed by the expanding central trunk.
    —Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
