Famous quotes containing the word images:

    ... I am an instrument in the shape/of a woman trying to translate pulsations/into images for the relief of the body/and the reconstruction of the mind.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    No healthy man, in his secret heart, is content with his destiny. He is tortured by dreams and images as a child is tortured by the thought of a state of existence in which it would live in a candy store and have two stomachs.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    How clean the sun when seen in its idea,
    Washed in the remotest cleanliness of a heaven
    That has expelled us and our images . . .
    The death of one god is the death of all.
    Let purple Phoebus lie in umber harvest,
    Let Phoebus slumber and die in autumn umber....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
