Famous quotes containing the word work:

    It is like any other work of art.
    It is and never can be changed.
    Behind everything there is always
    The unknown unwanted life.
    Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)

    It is impossible to think of a man of any actual force and originality, universally recognized as having those qualities, who spent his whole life appraising and describing the work of other men.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
