Famous quotes containing the word conception:

    Through art we express our conception of what nature is not.
    Pablo Picasso (1881–1973)

    The fact is that all writers create their precursors. Their work modifies our conception of the past, just as it is bound to modify the future.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    We are weighed down, every moment, by the conception and the sensation of Time. And there are but two means of escaping and forgetting this nightmare: pleasure and work. Pleasure consumes us. Work strengthens us. Let us choose.
