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)

    A glimpse through an interstice caught,
    Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a barroom around the stove late of a winter night, and I unremarked seated in a corner,
    Of a youth who loves me and whom I love, silently approaching and seating himself near, that he may hold me by the hand,
    A long while amid the noises of coming and going, of drinking and
    oath and smutty jest,
    There we two, content, happy in being together, speaking little,
    perhaps not a word.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
