Famous quotes containing the word motion:

    The motion picture is like a picture of a lady in a half- piece bathing suit. If she wore a few more clothes, you might be intrigued. If she wore no clothes at all, you might be shocked. But the way it is, you are occupied with noticing that her knees are too bony and that her toenails are too large. The modern film tries too hard to be real. Its techniques of illusion are so perfect that it requires no contribution from the audience but a mouthful of popcorn.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    Happier of happy though I be, like them
    I cannot take possession of the sky,
    Mount with a thoughtless impulse, and wheel there,
    One of a mighty multitude whose way
    And motion is a harmony and dance
    Magnificent.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    till disproportion’d sin
    Jarr’d against natures chime, and with harsh din
    Broke the fair musick that all creatures made
    To their great Lord, whose love their motion sway’d
    In perfect Diapason, whilst they stood
    In first obedience, and their state of good.
    John Milton (1608–1674)
