Portray

Famous quotes containing the word portray:

    When I try to portray to myself my heart’s desire, nothing happens.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Others form man; I tell of him, and portray a particular one, very ill-formed, whom I should really make very different from what he is if I had to fashion him over again. But now it is done.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    I do not portray the thing in itself. I portray the passage; not a passing from one age to another, or, as the people put it, from seven years to seven years, but from day to day, from minute to minute.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
