Famous quotes containing the words pictures and/or paramount:

    In some pictures of Provincetown the persons of the inhabitants are not drawn below the ankles, so much being supposed to be buried in the sand.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There are many faculties in man, each of which takes its turn of activity, and that faculty which is paramount in any period and exerts itself through the strongest nation, determines the civility of that age: and each age thinks its own the perfection of reason.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
