Famous quotes containing the word painted:

    There must be real gods
    see, the painted gods
    how fair!
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    It is known that Whistler when asked how long it took him to paint one of his “nocturnes” answered: “All of my life.” With the same rigor he could have said that all of the centuries that preceded the moment when he painted were necessary. From that correct application of the law of causality it follows that the slightest event presupposes the inconceivable universe and, conversely, that the universe needs even the slightest of events.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    Came to Ajanta cave, the painted space of the breast,
    the real world where everything is complete,
    there are no shadows, the forms of incompleteness,
    The great cloak blows in the light, rider and horse arrive,
    the shoulders turn and every gift is made.
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)
