Famous quotes containing the words people and/or wide:

    The explanation of the propensity of the English people to portrait painting is to be found in their relish for a Fact. Let a man do the grandest things, fight the greatest battles, or be distinguished by the most brilliant personal heroism, yet the English people would prefer his portrait to a painting of the great deed. The likeness they can judge of; his existence is a Fact. But the truth of the picture of his deeds they cannot judge of, for they have no imagination.
    Benjamin Haydon (1786–1846)

    In sunburnt parks where Sundays lie,
    Or the wide wastes beyond the cities,
    Teams in grey deploy through sunlight.

    Talk it up, boys, a little practice.
    Robert Fitzgerald (1910–1985)
