Famous quotes containing the word peculiar:

    The peculiarity of sculpture is that it creates a three-dimensional object in space. Painting may strive to give on a two-dimensional plane, the illusion of space, but it is space itself as a perceived quantity that becomes the peculiar concern of the sculptor. We may say that for the painter space is a luxury; for the sculptor it is a necessity.
    Sir Herbert Read (1893–1968)

    He tries by a peculiar speech to speak
    The peculiar potency of the general,
    To compound the imagination’s Latin with
    The lingua franca et jocundissima.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    What is peculiar in the life of a man consists not in his obedience, but his opposition, to his instincts. In one direction or another he strives to live a supernatural life.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
