Maxfield Parrish

…The truth is I don’t understand or care about competition, I can’t even understand what Hemingway and his counterpart Mailer are referring to when they talk about facing another talent in the ring. As far as I know, no work of art has ever moved to another work of art; the living do not compete with the dead, nor the living.

— Joyce Carol Oates
