  1. Homer:

    Among all men on the earth bards have a share of honor and reverence, because the muse has taught them songs and loves the race of bards.

  2. Abby Schreiber:

    I don’t think it’s necessarily unwise for a business to make a political statement, particularly privately-owned businesses in the fashion sector, said Abby Schreiber, managing editor at Paper Magazine. Fashion has always been about expression, provocation and, not infrequently, politics and, to that end, these designers ’ refusal to dress Melania Trump is not, in and of itself, unusual for this industry. fashion designers have long attempted to tell a story about their brand and vision and to articulate a feeling, emotion or sense of who their customer or ‘ muse ’ is, Schreiber said. And for those designers who are troubled by the hateful, bigoted rhetoric that surrounded Trump’s campaign, it may make sense for them to want to distance their brand and their vision from it. But Robert Casey, President of modeling agency Maggie, Inc., offered a simple solution.

  3. Daniel Levitin:

  4. William Seward Burroughs:

    So cheat your landlord if you can and must, but do not try to shortchange the Muse. It cannot be done. You can't fake quality any more than you can fake a good meal.
