Seated

Famous quotes containing the word seated:

    It is in this impossibility of attaining to a synthesis of the inner life and the outward that the inferiority of the biographer to the novelist lies. The biographer quite clearly sees Peel, say, seated on his bench while his opponents overwhelm him with perhaps undeserved censure. He sees him motionless, miserable, his head bent on his breast. He asks himself: “What is he thinking?” and he knows nothing.
    Andre Maurois (1885–1967)

    I seated ugliness on my knee, and almost immediately grew tired of it.
    Salvador Dali (1904–1989)

    Often I think of the beautiful town
    That is seated by the sea;
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
