„I'm not concerned about avoiding anything that happened three years ago or worried about letdowns or things of that nature. When you use the term 'letdown' you proceed with the assumption that this is a continuation of something that happened in the past.“

—  Mike Tomlin head coach of the National Football League's Pittsburgh Steelers 1972
Referring to the Steelers' poor start in 2006 following their Super Bowl win, as quoted in "Tomlin looks ahead" by Ed Bouchette, in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (1 August 2009) http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09213/987980-66.stm

„What happens when a new work of art is created, is something that happens simultaneously to all the works of art which preceded it.“

—  T.S. Eliot 20th century English author 1888 - 1965
Context: What happens when a new work of art is created, is something that happens simultaneously to all the works of art which preceded it. The existing monuments form an ideal order among themselves, which is modified by the introduction of the new (the really new) work of art among them. The existing order is complete before the new work arrives; for order to persist after the supervention of novelty, the whole existing order must be, if ever so slightly, altered; and so the relations, proportions, values of each work of art toward the whole are readjusted; and this is conformity between the old and the new.
