Famous quotes containing the words david and/or lehman:

    The wonderful purity of nature at this season is a most pleasing fact.... In the bare fields and tinkling woods, see what virtue survives. In the coldest and bleakest places, the warmest charities still maintain a foothold.
    —Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I didn’t realize you were an art collector. I thought you just collected corpses. I’ll bet you paid plenty for this little piece of sculpture. She’s worth every dollar of it, take it from me. She puts her heart into her work, in fact, her whole body.
    —Ernest Lehman (b. 1920)
