Malcolm Cowley quotes

“Paris was freedom to dress as they pleased, talk and write as they pleased, drink as they pleased, and make love without worrying about the neighbors. Paris was a continual excitation of the senses.” – Malcolm Cowley, A Second Flowering

“They danced too much, they drank too much, but they also worked, with something of the same desperation; they worked to rise, to earn social rank, to sell, to advertise, to organize, to invent gadgets, and to create enduring works of literature.” – Malcolm Cowley, A Second Flowering

“The religion of art is an unstable religion which yearly makes over its calendar of saints.” – Malcolm Cowley, Exile’s Return
