Famous quotes containing the word image:

the head falls and
hangs and cannot wake itself.”

“For me, the child is a veritable image of becoming, of possibility, poised to reach towards what is not yet, towards a growing that cannot be predetermined or prescribed. I see her and I fill the space with others like her, risking, straining, wanting to find out, to ask their own questions, to experience a world that is shared.”

—Percy Wyndham Lewis (18821957)
