Pictures

Famous quotes containing the word pictures:

    “And what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “without pictures or conversations?”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    Then my verse I dishonour, my pictures despise,
    My person degrade & my temper chastise;
    And the pen is my terror, the pencil my shame;
    And my talents I bury, and dead is my fame.
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    I now require this of all pictures, that they domesticate me, not that they dazzle me. Pictures must not be too picturesque. Nothing astonishes men so much as common-sense and plain dealing. All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
