„Affluence separates people. Poverty knits 'em together.“

—  Ray Charles American musician 1930 - 2004

Roughing It, p. 155
Contesto: Affluence separates people. Poverty knits 'em together. You got some sugar and I don't; I borrow some of yours. Next month you might not have any flour; well, I'll give you some of mine.
That's how my band made it. We swam through a lot of shit together, we swallowed a lot of pride, but we managed to do what we needed to do.

—  Léon Bloy French writer, poet and essayist 1846 - 1917

L'Invendable (1909), p. 8
Originale: (fr) Tu seras invendable à perpétuité, l'Invendable, dans tes livres aussi bien que dans ta personne, et ainsi se réalisera tout à fait la séparation, naturellement désirée par toi, d'avec les vendeurs et les gens à vendre.

„You can do things that would bring people to another place and still get someone on a very daily mundane moving level but you don't have to separate art from the masses.“

—  Julie Taymor American film and theatre director 1952

Bill Moyers interview (2002)
Contesto: I used to say that arts were talked about in the arts and leisure page. Now, why would it be arts and leisure? Why do we think that arts are leisure? Why isn't it arts and science or arts and the most important thing in your life? I think that art has become a big scarlet letter in our culture.
It's a big "A." And it says, you are an elitist, you're effete, or whatever those things... do you know what I mean? It means you don't connect. And I don't believe that. I think we've patronized our audiences long enough.
You can do things that would bring people to another place and still get someone on a very daily mundane moving level but you don't have to separate art from the masses.
