Famous quotes containing the words john and/or berger:

    Where the Muse herself
    All Time fulfils,
    Who cuts with his scythe
    All things but hers;
    All but the blithe
    Hexameters.
    —Oliver St. John Gogarty (1878–1957)

    The heart of Paris is like nothing so much as the unending interior of a house. Buildings become furniture, courtyards become carpets and arrases, the streets are like galleries, the boulevards conservatories. It is a house, one or two centuries old, rich, bourgeois, distinguished. The only way of going out, or shutting the door behind you, is to leave the centre.
    —John Berger (b. 1926)
