Whatever his private behavior, the man and his work existed in different realms. Mencken's defects were commonplace; his virtues were not. So wonderfully uninhibited was his style that even a single sentence in a routine article proclaimed its begetter.1994 Of H L Mencken. In the NewYork Times Book Review, 8 May.
What a newspaper needs in its news, in its headlines, and on its editorial page is terseness, humor, descriptive power, satire, originality, good literary style, clever condensation and accuracy, accuracy, accuracy.joseph pulitzer
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
I have always enjoyed dealing with a slightly surrealistic situation and presenting it in a realistic manner. I've always liked fairy tales and myths, magical stories. I think they are somehow closer to the sense of reality one feels today than the equally stylized "realistic" story in which a great deal of selectivity and omission has to occur in order to preserve its "realist" style.Stanley Kubrick
God is really onlyanother artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant, and the cat. He has no real style. He just goes on trying other things.Quoted in F Gilot and C Lake Life with Picasso (1964), pt.1.
He had developed his own limited, or very simple style. He was never very keen on improving himself as a bass player and half the time I would play bass on the records because I would tend to do it quicker. Right back to those early records; I mean, at least half the bass on all recorded output is me anyway. … Rog used to come in and say, "Thank you very much" to me once in a while for winning him bass-playing polls.david gilmour

I learned the hula, so now I know how to shake my booty Hawaiian style.sanjaya malakar
His [Champlain's] books mark the man,—all for his theme and his purpose, nothing for himself. Crude in style, full of the superficial errors of carelessness and haste, rarely diffuse, often brief to a fault, they bear on every page the palpable impress of truth.francis parkman
The songwriting style, to me, is superior... there was a certain amount of joy in it, no matter how sad the song is. You get joy in listening to these Buddy Holly or Roy Orbison sad lyrics. I'm attracted to songs that have balance between the darks and the lights and giving them all equal opportunity.m. ward
Man, the living creature, the creating individual, is always more important than any established style or system.bruce lee
Padmanabha Swamy temple located inside the East Fort, this Vaishnava temple is very famous attracting devotees from all parts.

Straight lines don’t exists in Odissi. In contrast to the other classical Indian dances…take the position of tribhangi, the characteristic position of the Odissi style, made from three curves of the body with the torso displaced in the opposite direction to that of the waist and the head.By Samjukta Panigrahi quoted in "New Theatre Quarterly 55", p.257
Neither action nor style could have accomplished the result alone.Both were needed.Dean Gooderham Acheson
The problem is not style but quality, not aesthetics but ethics.Rogers, Richard George Rogers, Baron

A man is free to go up as high as he can reach up to; but I, with all my style and pep, can't get a man my equal because a girl is always judged by her mother.anzia yezierska
Was it an intellectual consequence of this ‘rebirth,’ of this new dignity and rigor, that, at about the same time, his sense of beauty was observed to undergo an almost excessive resurgence, that his style took on the noble purity, simplicity and symmetry that were to set upon all his subsequent works that so evident and evidently intentional stamp of the classical master.thomas mann
Where questions of style and exposition are concerned I try to follow a simple maxim: if you can’t say it clearly you don’t understand it yourself.john searle

The dance style has not changed but with less time and more work, the duration has decreased,"Kumkum, who choreographed the famous Sufi number Piya Haji Ali in pure Kathak style in “Kathak faces fusion challenge”
Classical Carnatic music is but the continuance of ancient Indian music as it was prior to the advent of Persian influence and the attendant evolution of the Hindustani style. The Tamil areas in the South had from pre-historic times a well-developed, scientific, distinct style known as Pann. The Indian (later called the 'Carnatic' from the days of the work Manasollasa) and the Tamil Pann had coalesced invisibly during the middle ages and presently the South has the Carnatic music and the North has the Hindustani music - of course, both raga -based with common and distinct features.N. Rajagopalan, in "Another Garland (Biographical Dictionary of Carnatic Composers & Musicians) (Book II)", in Preface
It was a DJ style which helped to create the lifestyle which came to be known as hip hop. At the beginning of the disco era in the first half of the 1970s, regular disco jocks in clubs were most concerned with the blend between one record and the next - matching tempos to make a smooth transition which, at its best, could continually alter the mood on the dancefloor without breaking the flow. At its worst the technique could turn the night into one endless and inevitably boring song.David Toop (1991). Rap Attack 2: African Rap To Global Hip Hop, p.12. New York. New York: Serpent's Tail. ISBN 1852422432.
