Famous quotes containing the word object:

    The peculiarity of sculpture is that it creates a three-dimensional object in space. Painting may strive to give on a two-dimensional plane, the illusion of space, but it is space itself as a perceived quantity that becomes the peculiar concern of the sculptor. We may say that for the painter space is a luxury; for the sculptor it is a necessity.
    Sir Herbert Read (1893–1968)

    Agreeable then to my present inclination, I formed the object of my own worship, which was no other than my own understanding.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)

    America has always been a country of amateurs where the professional, that is to say, the man who claims authority as a member of an élite which knows the law in some field or other, is an object of distrust and resentment.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
