Famous quotes containing the words sculpture and/or clay:
“Ah, to build, to build!
That is the noblest art of all the arts.
Painting and sculpture are but images,
Are merely shadows cast by outward things
On stone or canvas, having in themselves
No separate existence. Architecture,
Existing in itself, and not in seeming
A something it is not, surpasses them
As substance shadow.”
—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (18071882)
“And here the precious dust is layd;
Whose purely temperd Clay was made
So fine, that it the guest betrayd.
Else the soule grew so fast within,
It broke the outward shell of sinne,
And so was hatchd a Cherubin.”
—Thomas Carew (15891639)
