Viewing

Famous quotes containing the word viewing:

    Beguile the time, and feed your knowledge
    With viewing of the town.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    A lover is never a completely self-reliant person viewing the world through his own eyes, but a hostage to a certain delusion. He becomes a perjurer, all his thoughts and emotions being directed with reference, not to an accurate and just appraisal of the real world but rather to the safety and exaltation of his loved one, and the madness with which he pursues her, transmogrifying his attention, blinds him like a victim.
    Alexander Theroux (b. 1940)

    The happiest youth, viewing his progress through,
    What perils past, what crosses to ensue,
    Would shut the book, and sit him down and die.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
