In science, read, by preference, the newest works; in literature, the oldest. The classic literature is always modern.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.
Love works not for profit nor reward; yet God has ordained that great gain shall be the certain result of every labor of love.
Ellen G. White
All works of art are commissioned in the sense that no artist can create one by a simple act of will but must wait until what he believes to be a good idea for a work comes to him.
W. H. Auden
There's different kinds of laughs. It's like a baseball lineup: this guy's your power hitter, this guy gets on base, this guy works out walks. If everybody does their job, we're gonna win.
To write the lives of the great in separating them from their works necessarily ends by above all stressing their pettiness, because it is in their work that they have put the best of themselves.
Satan works through human agents.
Ezra Taft Benson
Until the 20th century it was generally assumed that a writer had said what he had to say in his works.
I want to tell any young girl out there who's a geek, I was a really serious geek in high school. It works out. Study harder.

I think most people are inherently interested in how their brain works, in what makes them tick.
Our works, whatever they may be, derive from our incapacity to kill or to kill ourselves.
Emile M. Cioran

Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel

A museum has to renew its collection to be alive, but that does not mean we give on important old works.

John F. Kennedy
