Famous quotes containing the word mark:

    If it is the mark of the artist to love art before everything, to renounce everything for its sake, to think all the sweet human things of life well lost if only he may attain something, do some good, great work—then I was never an artist.
    Ellen Terry (1847–1928)

    ...they look like trees, walking.
    Bible: New Testament, Mark 8:24.

    A man partially healed of blindness commenting on what he sees.

    It is the mark of an educated man to look for precision in each class of things just so far as the nature of the subject admits; it is evidently equally foolish to accept probable reasoning from a mathematician and to demand from a rhetorician demonstrative proofs.
    Aristotle (384–323 B.C.)
