Famous quotes containing the word object:

    Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second and you can hop from one place to another. It’s a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.
    Frederico Fellini (1920–1993)

    His eye begets occasion for his wit,
    For every object that the one doth catch
    The other turns to a mirth-moving jest.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Agreeable then to my present inclination, I formed the object of my own worship, which was no other than my own understanding.
    Sarah Fielding (1710–1768)
