    Lillian Breslow Rubin (20th century)

    The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)

    An actor who knows his business ought to be able to make the London telephone directory sound enthralling.
    Donald Sinden (b. 1923)

    A field of water betrays the spirit that is in the air. It is continually receiving new life and motion from above. It is intermediate in its nature between land and sky.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    As a general truth, it is safe to say that any picture that produces a moral impression is a bad picture.
