Famous quotes containing the word picture:

    The three of you together. Now that’s a picture only Charles Addams could draw.
    Ernest Lehman (b.1920)

    I hate cheap pictures. I hate pictures that make people look like they’re not worth much, just to prove a photographer’s point. I hate when they take a picture of someone pickin’ their nose or yawning. It’s so cheap. A lot of it is a big ego trip. You use people as props instead of as people.
    Jill Freedman (b. 1939)

    Found this picture of Angie laughing in a restaurant with some other people, everybody pretty but beyond that it was like they had this glow, not really in the photograph but it was there anyway, something you feel. Look, she said to Lanette, showing her the picture, they got this glow.
    It’s called money, Lanette said.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)
