Famous quotes containing the word construction:

    Striving toward a goal puts a more pleasing construction on our advance toward death.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    There’s no art
    To find the mind’s construction in the face.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    No real “vital” character in fiction is altogether a conscious construction of the author. On the contrary, it may be a sort of parasitic growth upon the author’s personality, developing by internal necessity as much as by external addition.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
