Famous quotes containing the word statue:

    All over France, in every city there stand cathedrals like this one, triumphant monuments of the past. They tower over the homes of our people like mighty guardians, keeping alive the invincible faith of the Christian. Every arch, every column, every statue is a carved leaf out of our history, a book in stone, glorifying the spirit of France.
    Sonya Levien (1895–1960)

    The mind, in short, works on the data it receives very much as a sculptor works on his block of stone. In a sense the statue stood there from eternity. But there were a thousand different ones beside it, and the sculptor alone is to thank for having extricated this one from the rest.
    William James (1842–1910)

    The man who is ostentatious of his modesty is twin to the statue that wears a fig-leaf.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
