Famous quotes containing the word departure:

    This house was but a slight departure from the hollow tree, which the bear still inhabits,—being a hollow made with trees piled up, with a coating of bark like its original.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    An idea is a point of departure and no more. As soon as you elaborate it, it becomes transformed by thought.
    Pablo Picasso (1881–1973)

    There is all the difference in the world between departure from recognised rules by one who has learned to obey them, and neglect of them through want of training or want of skill or want of understanding. Before you can be eccentric you must know where the circle is.
    Ellen Terry (1847–1928)
