Famous quotes containing the words additional, fields and/or study:

    Don’t you think I’ve had enough excitement for one evening, without the additional thrill of a strange man making love to me?
    John L. Balderston (1899–1954)

    Smart lad, to slip betimes away
    From fields where glory does not stay,
    And early though the laurel grows
    It withers quicker than the rose.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)

    We should always remember that the work of art is invariably the creation of a new world, so that the first thing we should do is to study that new world as closely as possible, approaching it as something brand new, having no obvious connection with the worlds we already know. When this new world has been closely studied, then and only then let us examine its links with other worlds, other branches of knowledge.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
