Famous quotes containing the word picture:

    We live in an age of reproduction. Most of what makes up our personal picture of the world we have never seen with our own eyes—or rather we have seen it with our own eyes, but not on the spot: our knowledge comes to us from a distance, we are tele- viewers, tele-hearers, tele-knowers.
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)

    A picture is a fact.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)
