Famous quotes containing the word image:

    Dark-heaving; boundless, endless, and sublime,
    The image of Eternity,—the throne
    Of the Invisible!
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    O love, my love! if I no more should see
    Thyself, nor on the earth the shadow of thee,
    Nor image of thine eyes in any spring,—
    How then should sound upon Life’s darkening slope
    The ground-whirl of the perished leaves of Hope,
    The wind of Death’s imperishable wing?
    Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882)

    Man is an exception, whatever else he is. If he is not the image of God, then he is a disease of the dust. If it is not true that a divine being fell, then we can only say that one of the animals went entirely off its head.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)
