Famous quotes containing the words university, midlands and/or state:
“One can describe a landscape in many different words and sentences, but one would not normally cut up a picture of a landscape and rearrange it in different patterns in order to describe it in different ways. Because a photograph is not composed of discrete units strung out in a linear row of meaningful pieces, we do not understand it by looking at one element after another in a set sequence. The photograph is understood in one act of seeing; it is perceived in a gestalt.”

—D.H. (David Herbert)
“There is one consolation in being sick; and that is the possibility that you may recover to a better state than you were ever in before.”
