Famous quotes containing the word reflection:

    Water. Its sunny track in the plain; its splashing in the garden canal, the sound it makes when in its course it meets the mane of the grass; the diluted reflection of the sky together with the fleeting sight of the reeds; the Negresses fill their dripping gourds and their red clay containers; the song of the washerwomen; the gorged fields the tall crops ripening.
    Jacques Roumain (1907–1945)

    Much of what passes for quality on British television is no more than a reflection of the narrow elite which controls it and has always thought that its tastes were synonymous with quality.
    Rupert Murdoch (b. 1931)

    The reflection of her here, and then there,
    Is another shadow, another evasion,
    Another denial. If she is everywhere,
    She is nowhere, to him.
    But this she has made.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
