«Cheese steaks are the gastronomic icons of this ethnic city.»
«The world has lost its quintessential romantic icon.»
«These are icons to be treasured.»
«I never think of myself as an icon. What is in other people's minds is not in my mind. I just do my thing.»
«Iconic clothing has been secularized. A guardsman in a dress uniform is ostensibly an icon of aggression; his coat is red as the blood he hopes to shed. Seen on a coat-hanger, with no man inside it, the uniform loses all its blustering significance and, to the innocent eye seduced by decorative color and tactile braid, it is as abstract in symbolic information as a parasol to an Eskimo. It becomes simply magnificent.»
