Famous quotes containing the word long:

    Art is beauty, and every exposition of art, whether it be music, painting, or the drama, should be subservient to that one great end. As long as nature is a means to the attainment of beauty, so-called realism is necessary and permissable [sic], but it must be realism enhanced by idealism and uplifted by the spirit of an inner life or purpose.
    Julia Marlowe (1866–1950)

    I long to hear how my dear, dear, beloved Mr. Crisp does. My papa always mentions him by the name of my Flame—Indeed he is not mistaken—himself is the only man on earth I prefer to him.
    Frances Burney (1752–1840)

    Bible: Hebrew Isaiah, 6:11.
