Famous quotes containing the word pictures:

    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)

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

    There is nothing on earth more exquisite than a bonny book, with well-placed columns of rich black writing in beautiful borders, and illuminated pictures cunningly inset. But nowadays, instead of looking at books, people read them. A book might as well be one of those orders for bacon and bran.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
