Famous quotes containing the words john berger, berger and/or john:

    Ours is the century of enforced travel ... of disappearances. The century of people helplessly seeing others, who were close to them, disappear over the horizon.
    John Berger (b. 1926)

    The heart of Paris is like nothing so much as the unending interior of a house. Buildings become furniture, courtyards become carpets and arrases, the streets are like galleries, the boulevards conservatories. It is a house, one or two centuries old, rich, bourgeois, distinguished. The only way of going out, or shutting the door behind you, is to leave the centre.
    —John Berger (b. 1926)

    Mrs. John Lyford is so much pleased with the state of
    widowhood as to be going to put in for being a widow again; she
    is to marry a Mr. Fendall.
    Jane Austen (1775–1817)
