Famous quotes containing the words jean and/or arp:

    You’re a dreamer, Doc. Too much money is bad for dreamers.
    —John Thomas Neville. Jean Yarborough. Henry Morton (Guy Usher)

    Soon silence will have passed into legend. Man has turned his back on silence. Day after day he invents machines and devices that increase noise and distract humanity from the essence of life, contemplation, meditation.... Tooting, howling, screeching, booming, crashing, whistling, grinding, and trilling bolster his ego. His anxiety subsides. His inhuman void spreads monstrously like a gray vegetation.
    —Jean Arp (1887–1948)
