White as a winding sheet, Masks blowing down the street: Moscow, Paris London, Vienna all are undone. The drums of death are mumbling, rumbling, and tumbling, Mumbling, rumbling, and tumbling, The world's floors are quaking, crumbling and breaking.
CIRCA aims to make clowning dangerous again, to bring it back to the Street, restore its disobedience and give it back the social function it once had: its ability to disrupt, critique and heal society. Since the beginning of time tricksters (the mythological origin or all clowns) have embraced life's paradoxes , creating coherence through confusion adding disorder to the world in order to expose its lies and speak the truth.
A person in a rented apartment must be able to lean out of his window and scrape off the masonry within arm's reach. And he must be allowed to take a long brush and paint everything outside within arm's reach. So that it will be visible from afar to everyone in the Street that someone lives there who is different from the imprisoned, enslaved, standardised man who lives next door.friedensreich hundertwasser

Objectively, class differences in accent, dress, manners, and general style of life are very much smaller; and one cannot, strolling about the Street or travelling on a train, instantly identify a person’s social background as one can in England. Subjectively, social relations are more natural and egalitarian, and less marked by deference, submissiveness, or snobbery, as one quickly discovers from the cab-driver, the barman, the air-hostess and the drug-store assistant.anthony crosland
The Lennon-McCartney comparison was frequently made and that was an image that critics could relate to. But it wasn't something people in the Street could pick up on the way they'll pick up on someone who's really good-looking.
You may be a king or a little Street sweeper, but sooner or later you dance with the reaper!
Halfway down a by-Street of one of our New England towns stands a rusty wooden house, with seven acutely peaked gables, facing towards various points of the compass, and a huge, clustered chimney in the midst. The Street is Pyncheon Street; the house is the old Pyncheon House; and an elm-tree, of wide circumference, rooted before the door, is familiar to every town-born child by the title of the Pyncheon Elm.Nathaniel Hawthorne
So, then, Oxford Street, stonyhearted stepmother, thou that listenest to the sighs of orphans, and drinkest the tears of children, at length I was dismissed from thee.thomas de quincey
Maybe that's what is crazy: to want to be free. A lot of people wouldn't cross the Street for it.George Jonas
Andrea presented herself as a Street fighter intellectual, a bohemian freedom fighter, and someone who wanted to get to the bottom of things. That quote about Malcolm X is apt. Malcolm pointed out “The problem is WHITE PEOPLE.” Dworkin said, “The problem is MEN.” And for all the holes that can be poked in that cloth, there is something about that grain that is absolutely true, when you are the short end of the bolt.susie bright
The fate of the country does not depend on how you vote at the polls — the worst man is as strong as the best at that game; it does not depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot-box once a year, but on what kind of man you drop from your chamber into the Street every morning.Henry David Thoreau
And behind their frail partitions Business women lie and soak, Seeing through the draughty skylight Flying clouds and railway smoke. Rest you there, poor unbelov'd ones, Lap your loneliness in heat, All too soon the tiny breakfast, Trolley-bus and windy Street!john betjeman
The idea (for the painting ‘Room in New York’, 1932, ed.) had been in my mind a long time before I painted it. It was suggested by glimpses of lighted interiors seen as I walked along city streets at night, probably near the district where I live (Washington Square, New York, fh) although it’s no particular Street or house, but is really a synthesis of many impressions.Edward Hopper
Nowadays you don't go around on the Street kicking people, punching people because if you do (makes gun shape with hand), well that's it I don't care how good you are.bruce lee
No! How could I be defeated again by a pack of filthy Street rats?!
What, after all, is a better example of chaos theory than the harassment of a Street vendor in Tunisia leading to a civil war in Syria?
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season. The Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the Street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'
History repeats itself all the time on Wall Street.edwin lefèvre
Him, who incessantly laughs in the Street, you may commonly hear grumbling in his closet.johann kaspar lavater
Thick rumors of imminent peace are in the air.. ..Big spectacle with six or seven British tanks. In the afternoon, they played war once more at the Palaisplein (near Dam square in Amsterdam) and at the Rokin (Street where Beckmann lived for 7 years – as a German under German occupation; The Netherlands was liberated by the Allies, 5 May 1945).max beckmann
Profits and prices are the Street signs of the economy. Only fools flout them. The much–maligned price system works not only to secure supply but to conserve.ilana mercer
Knowing as "the man in the Street" (as we call him at Newmarket) always does, the greatest secrets of kings, and being the confidant of their most hidden thoughts.
I have serviced no kings , yet I wager that I can shave a cheek with ten times more dexterity than any Street mountebank!
