Famous quotes containing the words state, university and/or twin:

    The State is the altar of political freedom and, like the religious altar, it is maintained for the purpose of human sacrifice.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

    Poetry presents indivisible wholes of human consciousness, modified and ordered by the stringent requirements of form. Prose, aiming at a definite and concrete goal, generally suppresses everything inessential to its purpose; poetry, existing only to exhibit itself as an aesthetic object, aims only at completeness and perfection of form.
    Richard Harter Fogle, U.S. critic, educator. The Imagery of Keats and Shelley, ch. 1, University of North Carolina Press (1949)

    That Dali is really Norman Rockwell’s twin brother kidnapped by gypsies in babyhood.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
