Famous quotes containing the word ideal:

    The ideal American type is perfectly expressed by the Protestant, individualist, anti-conformist, and this is the type that is in the process of disappearing. In reality there are few left.
    Orson Welles (1915–1984)

    ... my whole existence is governed by abstract ideas.... the ideal must be preserved regardless of fact.
    Mary Corinna Putnam (1842–1906)

    Realism absorbs the ideal by adding a few small imperfections. Example: it paints a few specks of mud on the white gown of the Lady in the Garden.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
