Picture quotes by Roy DeCarava
#1. A photograph is a photograph, a picture, an image, an illusion complete within itself, depending neither on words, reproductive processes or anything else for its life, its reason for being. #Quote by Roy DeCarava
Picture quotes by Rodney Dangerfield
#2. Went to a bar for a few drinks. The bartender asked what I wanted. "Surprise me", I said. So he showed me a naked picture of my wife. #Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
Picture quotes by Mindy Fordham
#3. Art lovers collect paintings that demonstrate some form of imperceptible complexity. Abstract images with vague messages and symbols that keep you guessing and wondering what it all means, if anything. What these art buffs don't seem to realize is that true complexity - the real abstract image - lies in something as simple and as random as a family photo. If they bothered to look deeply and closely enough into these unremarkable images, they would see the lies, the sorrow and the dark secrets that hide behind the superficial smiles and forced joviality. A picture is worth a thousand words, but most of those words get lost in translation. #Quote by Mindy Fordham
Picture quotes by Grant Naylor
#4. Your explanation for anything slightly odd is aliens,' said Lister. 'You lose your keys, it's aliens. A picture falls off the wall, it's aliens. That time we used up a whole bog roll in a day, you thought that was aliens. #Quote by Grant Naylor
Picture quotes by Rosemary Sutcliff
#5. But against sandfly fever one could be inoculated, and I have another, hideously vivid picture of a great menacing brute of a doctor sticking a Thing that ended in a vicious needle into my mother's arm. Mad to defend my own, I scrambled off my father's knee, and flew to her rescue. I fixed my teeth in the doctor's horrible hairy wrist and hung on like a terrier, until my father succeeded in prising me away. Afterwards, everybody said how wonderful the doctor had been, because he continued calmly giving the inoculation while I was prised off him, instead of breaking the needle in my mother's arm. But nobody said how brave it was of me, only three years old, when all is said and done, and gone in the legs at that, to take on such fearful odds for the sake of love. #Quote by Rosemary Sutcliff
Picture quotes by Rick Riordan
#6. A picture-perfect moment, except for the fact that we were about to die and the world was going to end. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Picture quotes by Laird Barron
#7. Take a picture of God, tack it on the wall and see who bows. #Quote by Laird Barron
Picture quotes by Richard D. Zanuck
#8. The technology is really where all of the changes have taken place, but the fundamentals of a good story being the basis of every good picture, and really the only basis still remains the rule, more so today, I think, because we've unfortunately weaned an audience from birth to kind of mindless movies. #Quote by Richard D. Zanuck
Picture quotes by Pat McBride
#9. When we are angry, we will use a lie as fast as a truth if we can hurt with it. Anger feels strong but it is actually a disguised weakness. To someone with their eyes closed, all the pictures that you show them will seem the same. It is better to whisper words of love instead of trying to find a better picture. The end of a relationship is not a failure any more than the end of a book is a failure. #Quote by Pat McBride
Picture quotes by Daniel Goleman
#10. Cognitive skills such as big-picture thinking and long-term vision were particularly important. But when I calculated the ratio of technical skills, IQ, and emotional intelligence as ingredients of excellent performance, emotional intelligence proved to be twice as important as the others for jobs at all levels. #Quote by Daniel Goleman
Picture quotes by James Elkins
#11. To an artist, a picture is both a sum of ideas and a blurry memory of 'pushing paint,' breathing fumes, dripping oils and wiping brushes, smearing and diluting and mixing. #Quote by James Elkins
Picture quotes by Lady Gaga
#12. Take my picture Hollywood. I wanna be STAR #Quote by Lady Gaga
Picture quotes by A.L. Davroe
#13. Every hour of every day spent with him, the slow slope of falling for this boy in more than just a carnal fashion has been like slowly pulling the strings on some great tapestry. Every day the weave becomes tighter, the picture clearer, everything more complete. #Quote by A.L. Davroe
Picture quotes by Bill Jay
#14. A photograph is a picture and no more true or false than any other depiction; why is that so hard to comprehend? #Quote by Bill Jay
Picture quotes by Erich Von Stroheim
#15. The picture has made its million back in four months; I have been overwhelmed by letters, hundreds of them, literally, begging me in my next production not to swing over the shallow trash of mother love, father love, sister love, brother love. #Quote by Erich Von Stroheim
Picture quotes by Julia Leigh
#16. Although filmmaking is collaborative and involves trust, ultimately it is the director who holds the whole picture together in their head. #Quote by Julia Leigh
Picture quotes by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward
#17. The Girl of the Period, sauntering before one down Broadway, is one panorama of awful surprises from top to toe. Her clothes characterize her. She never characterizes her clothes. She is upholstered, not ornamented. She is bundled, not draped. She is puckered, not folded. She struts, she does not sweep. She has not one of the attributes of nature nor of proper art. She neither soothes the eye like a flower, nor pleases it like a picture. She wearies it like a kaleidoscope. She is a meaningless dazzle of broken effects. #Quote by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward
Picture quotes by Jennifer Maschari
#18. Elliot couldn't leave behind all the great things that had built her up and made her Elliott. Or the sad things. Dr. Miller has asked them to close their eyes and picture it one time - all the moments that had happened in their lives. Those moments were like their DNA, weaving together the fabric of who they were. They couldn't just cut away the bad stuff and only take the good or else the fabric would be full of holes. That's life, she had said. And you are not Swiss cheese. So when the good comes along, you've got to hold on to it. #Quote by Jennifer Maschari
Picture quotes by Barbara Jean Coast
#19. Do you mind? Just drape your arm around her shoulder. That's it. Yes this is good, Mr.Henshaw. Getting your picture taken with Daphne is a great way to introduce you to our set. Welcome to Santa Lucia! #Quote by Barbara Jean Coast
Picture quotes by Meg Cabot
#20. I looked where he was tapping.
"Local Girl Missing, Feared Dead"
Beneath it was a photo or me-my most recent school photo. "Oh no." My heart filling with dread, i took the paper from Mr. Smith's hands. "Couldn't they have found a better picture? #Quote by Meg Cabot
Picture quotes by John Le Carre
#21. Some fieldmen, and particularly the clever ones, take a perverse pride in not knowing the whole picture. Their art consists in the deft handling of loose ends, and stops there stubbornly. #Quote by John Le Carre
Picture quotes by Christine Kenneally
#22. If every chunk of DNA were halved with every generation, the result would be a rather neat picture of proportionately shrinking segments that matched an expanding fan of cousins. But if the cut and shuffle of DNA down through the generations is not a smooth, even process and relatively large chunks of DNA may be passed on through generations more or less unchanged, it has some interesting implications for what DNA can tell us about the past. #Quote by Christine Kenneally
Picture quotes by Benjamin Alire Saenz
#23. Beautiful," she said. I turned the page, and she smiled. It was a picture of the day when we built the human pyramid in my backyard, and I was at the top. The caption read: One day, all these Mexicans built a pyramid to the Sun. "You were my pyramid," she whispered. "All of you. #Quote by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Picture quotes by Terence McKenna
#24. What is important is to understand the true boundaries of reality, not the probable boundaries of possible future events. Although boundary conditions operate on the future, they are probabilistic constraints, not absolutely determined fact. We assume that ten minutes hence, the room we are in will still exist. It is a boundary condition that will define the next ten minutes in our space/time coordinate. But we cannot know who will be in the room ten minutes hence; that is free to be determined. One may ask if we can really know that the room will exist at any future moment. This is where induction enters the picture, since in truth we cannot know with certainty. There is no absolutely rigorous way of establishing that. But we can make the inductive leap of faith that has to do with accumulated experience. We project that the existence of the room will remain a boundary condition, but in principle in the next ten minutes there could be an earthquake and this building might not be left standing. However, for that to happen, the boundary condition will have to be radically disrupted in some unexpected and improbable manner. What is so curious is that such a thing could occur. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Picture quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#25. Together with an elderly artist (I regret that I don't remember his name) he occupied a separate room in the barracks. And there Yuri painted for nothing schmaltzy pictures such as Nero's Feast and the Chorus of Elves and the like for the German officers on the commandant's staff. In return, he was given food. The slops for which the POW officers stood in line with their mess tins from 6 a.m. on, while the Ordners beat them with sticks and the cooks with ladles, were not enough to sustain life. At evening, Yuri could see from the windows of their room the one and only picture for which his artistic talent had been given him: the evening mist hovering above a swampy meadow encircled by barbed wire; a multitude of bonfires; and, around the bonfires, beings who had once been Russian officers but had now become beastlike creatures who gnawed the bones of dead horses, who baked patties from potato rinds, who smoked manure and were all swarming with lice. Not all those two-legged creatures had died as yet. Not all of them had yet lost the capacity for intelligible speech, and one could see in the crimson reflections of the bonfires how a belated understanding was dawning on those faces which were descending to the Neanderthal. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Picture quotes by Sally Mann
#26. The thing that makes writing so difficult is you don't have the element of serendipity. At least with a photograph, you can set up the camera, and something might happen. You might be a lousy photographer, but you can get a good picture if you just take enough of them. #Quote by Sally Mann
Picture quotes by Billy Corgan
#27. Everybody can close their eyes, picture a dream house or a perfect place [where] they'd like to have a picnic. But actually creating it - how do you create something from nothing? Anyone who's creative understands that that's the magic, that's the alchemy. #Quote by Billy Corgan
Picture quotes by Roberto G. Ferrari
#28. My son is the man who is handing his passport to the policeman.
My son is the policeman who is receiving the passport.
My son is the old man in front of me in the queue, here, in the air-port, in Beijing.
Over the last twelve months, I have been seeing the face of my son in the faces of all the Chinese people I have happened to meet.
I was walking in Milan, Italy, when Laura called me and told me that our application had been finally sent to China. We would be receivinga son or a daughter from China. I was excited. I put my phone into my jacket pocket and slowed down in the Corso Vittorio Emanuele gallery. There was a multitude of people around me, but I was totally unaware of their existence. I was trying to picture my son's, or my daughter's face and hands. I wondered what age he or she was. For a while I kept imagining and reviewing all the possibilities, and all the hypotheses, but I was not able to create an image which would bring an end to my seeking.
Then, suddenly, I found him.
He was walking in front of me with his wife and little daughter. I was not sure about his origin, if he were truly Chinese or not, but it was definitely him. He was a little younger than I. I was happy to see he was so distinguished, with his gold-rimmed glasses and nicely ironed, blue shirt. #Quote by Roberto G. Ferrari
Picture quotes by Eddie Adams
#29. I saw a man walk into my camera viewfinder from the left. He took a pistol out of his holster and raised it. I had no idea he would shoot. It was common to hold a pistol to the head of prisoners during questioning. So I prepared to make that picture - the threat, the interrogation. But it didn't happen. The man just pulled a pistol out of his holster, raised it to the VC's head and shot him in the temple. I made a picture at the same time. (On his 1968 photograph of the summary street corner execution of prisoner Nguyen Van Lem by South Vietnam's police chief, Lt. Col. Nguyen Ngoc Loan.) #Quote by Eddie Adams
Picture quotes by Anne Michaels
#30. When Miss Petitfour made a fancy salad, Minky watched the way the lettuce leaves bent under the slight weight of the Parmesan; when Miss Petitfour had cheese toast for tea, Minky noticed how the cheddar melted into every little crevice and crater of the toast. She licked her whiskers greedily when Miss Petitfour lowered her hand to feed her snippets and smidgens, pinches and wedges, slices and crumbs. Minky loved all cheese--Swiss cheese, Edam cheese, Gruyere and Roquefort, Brie cheese and blue cheese, mozzarella and Parmesan, hard cheese, crumbly cheese, creamy cheese, lumpy cheese. Minky even had a cheese calendar that she kept with, which Miss Petitfour had given to her for Christmas. Each month there was a big picture of a different kind of cheese in a mouthwatering pose: blue cheese cavorting with pears, cheddar laughing with apples, Gruyere lounging with grapes, Edam joking with parsley. #Quote by Anne Michaels
Picture quotes by Christopher Peachment
#31. And David and Goliath I have done before, but this time there is a difference. David holds the head at arm's length and looks disgusted. And onto Goliath's severed head, I put my own features. The head hangs in darkness so that the black hair and beard framing the face blend off into the shadows, and there are four thin ropes of dark blood trailing down into space from the neck. And in one eye of the freshly severed head, there is still the faint glimmer of life.
That's me and that's the last painting I ever did.
Spectator, viewer, audience, however you care to call yourself; I address you here, with this, my final picture.
Cast a cold eye on it all, and on my work. I am still alive. #Quote by Christopher Peachment
Picture quotes by Edvard Munch
#32. I painted the picture, and in the colors the rhythm of the music quivers. I painted the colors I saw. #Quote by Edvard Munch
Picture quotes by Kristen Ashley
#33. Next time I get a scary picture text where you're bleeding from your ear and hanging from something, new rule!" I shrieked. "You come see me immediately after you're rescued! #Quote by Kristen Ashley
Picture quotes by Bidemi Mark-Mordi
#34. One stroke out of sync may alter the picture, but it doesn't cancel purpose; it may slow you down but doesn't disqualify you. #Quote by Bidemi Mark-Mordi
Picture quotes by Jim Butcher
#35. Harry," Bob said. "Stars and skies, you're all right!" He hesitated for a second, and then said, "And looking grim. Even dressed in boxers with yellow duckies on them." I glanced down, and did my best to picture a vampire wearing boxers with yellow duckies. Or a wizard wearing yellow duckies, for that matter. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Picture quotes by Carine Roitfeld
#36. The hair and makeup is very important in a fashion picture. When I create a look for a girl, it starts with the makeup. Sometimes it takes an entire day to find the look. #Quote by Carine Roitfeld
Picture quotes by John Redmond
#37. The holly green, the ivy green The prettiest picture you've ever seen Is Christmas in Killarney With all of the folks at home. #Quote by John Redmond
Picture quotes by Amy Reed
#38. There is a picture of me in their heads, a picture of someone I don't know yet. She is not the chubby girl with the braces and bad perm. She is not the girl hiding in the bathroom at recess. She is someone new, a blank slate they have named beautiful. That is what I am now: beautiful, with this new body and face and hair and clothes. Beautiful, with this erasing of history. #Quote by Amy Reed
Picture quotes by Stephanie Zacharek
#39. Pan's Labyrinth works on so many levels that it seems to change shape even as you watch it. It is, at times, a joyless picture, and its pall of sadness can begin to weigh you down. #Quote by Stephanie Zacharek
Picture quotes by Catriona Malan
#40. The Book Lover:-

See how I have come up in the World, because of my books.
I pull the covers agape, pages release their cargo and words fly like birds each with its own song.
Listen, and vowels will breathe like flutes in your head,
Consonants tick-tack like woodpeckers, and sibilants, sly as asps, bite the plosives that pop from our pressed lips.
A picture worth a thousand words?
You paint a score of trees, dark needled, stippled and stroked across your canvas:
My book say 'forrest' (Feel that Pine green touch)

You wash your paper with azures and turquoise, set ship after ship, sails wind-pregnant,
As far as the daubed horizon: my books say 'armada'. (Smell that sea-green scent)

Art's shape is their noun, its colour their objective,
Its tone their adverb; my books match the grammar of landscapes.

This book may say 'Socrates' secrets,
Freud's autopsy of actions or Heaney's verses;
Every idea dreamed by man caught, black stamped for all time, within its cardboard confines.
Here the past speaks to us, as the future will, in the language of our senses.

Step up book by book-
In time, you will reach the stars. #Quote by Catriona Malan
Picture quotes by Margaret Atwood
#41. Does she ever see him watching her through the picture window? Most likely. Does she think he's a lecherous old man? Very probably. But he isn't exactly that. How to convey the mix of longing, wistfulness, and muted regret that he feels? His regret is that he isn't a lecherous old man, but he wishes he were. He wishes he still could be. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Picture quotes by Sophie Oak
#42. I don't think about that day the crazy lady tried to shoot Abby but got you instead. It was an awful day. When it does cross my mind, I turn it around and think about something nice, like Abby's pussy. I just take a deep breath and picture it in my mind. It's my happy place. #Quote by Sophie Oak
Picture quotes by Larry Gelbart
#43. I don't think you can name a good picture where the production or the possible promotion isn't "cast-contingent." That means the film needs not just star power but star box office power. #Quote by Larry Gelbart
Picture quotes by Katie J. Davis
#44. Adoption is a beautiful picture of redemption. It is the Gospel in my living room. #Quote by Katie J. Davis
Picture quotes by Lauren DeStefano
#45. There's something about imminent death that makes all the threads weave into a picture ... #Quote by Lauren DeStefano
Picture quotes by Wendell Berry
#46. And yet love obstinately answers that no loved one is standardized. A body, love insists, is neither a spirit nor a machine; it is not a picture, a diagram, a chart, a graph, an anatomy; it is not an explanation; it is not a law. It is precisely and uniquely what it is. It belongs to the world of love, which is a world of living creatures, natural orders and cycles, many small, fragile lights in the dark. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Picture quotes by Robert Collier
#47. Vision - It reaches beyond the thing that is, into the conception of what can be. Imagination gives you the picture. Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own. #Quote by Robert Collier
Picture quotes by David Letterman
#48. I like Mitt Romney. He looks like the guy who comes with the picture frame. #Quote by David Letterman
Picture quotes by Lynda Barry
#49. You keep seeing your picture on posters that you are missing but you're not. That'd be weird, right? Or say you look down at the sidewalk and earthworms are spelling your name. Or you open a peanut bag and the 'hello' is written in your writing on the inside of the shell. Would that weird ya? #Quote by Lynda Barry
Picture quotes by Siri Hustvedt
#50. Sometimes, I would put down my book and look at the two of them in the light of my reading lamp. I now think I was lucky that I wasn't young. I knew what I might not have known earlier - that my happiness had come. I even told myself to fix the image of my wife and son in my mind while I watched them sleep, and it is still there, a clear picture left by my conscious wish. #Quote by Siri Hustvedt
Picture quotes by Al-Ghazali
#51. Remember your contemporaries who have passed away and were your age. Remember the honors and fame they earned, the high posts they held, and the beautiful bodies they possessed. Today all of them are turned to dust. They have left orphans and widows behind them, their wealth is being wasted, and their houses turned into ruins.
No sign of them is left today, and they lie in dark holes underneath the earth.
Picture their faces before your mind's eye and ponder. #Quote by Al-Ghazali
Picture quotes by Donna Tartt
#52. No matter how hard I tried to wish him out of the picture - for there he always was, in my hands and my voice and my walk ... #Quote by Donna Tartt
Picture quotes by Jenny Gardiner
#53. When I look at a pumpkin muffin, I see the brilliant orange glow of a sugar maple in its full autumnal glory. I see the crisp blue sky of October, so clear and restorative and reassuring. I see hayrides, and I feel Halloween just around the corner, kids dressed up in homemade costumes, bobbing for apples and awaiting trick or treat. I think of children dressed as Pilgrims in a pre-school parade, or a Thanksgiving feast, the bounty of harvest foods burdening a table with its goodness. I picture pumpkins at a farmer's market, piled happy and high, awaiting a new home where children will carve them into scary faces or mothers will bake them into a pie or stew. #Quote by Jenny Gardiner
Picture quotes by Fay Wray
#54. When the picture was finished, they took me into the sound room and then I screamed more for about five minutes just steady screaming, and then they'd cut that in and add it. #Quote by Fay Wray
Picture quotes by Manolo Blahnik
#55. Peter Hinwood found all these old pictures - Polaroids - and when I saw them, I just didn't believe that the person in them was connected with me. I was in a hotel room with one of those front-and-back mirrors, and I thought, Who the hell is that? I used to be thin as a rake. I used to have the nice-shaped pecs. It's sad. No, it's not sad, it's the reality, and I've accepted this now. #Quote by Manolo Blahnik
Picture quotes by Ryu Murakami
#56. Sometimes you can remember everything about an old friend, down to minor details about his behaviour, but for the life of you you can't picture his face. #Quote by Ryu Murakami
Picture quotes by Michael Jackson
#57. I think my image gets distorted in the public's mind. They don't get a clear or full picture of what I'm like, despite the press coverage I mentioned early. Mistruths are printed as fact, in some cases, and frequently only half of a story will be told. The part that doesn't get printed is often the part that would make the printed part less sensational by shedding light on the facts. #Quote by Michael Jackson
Picture quotes by John Steinbeck
#58. I want to see the whole picture - as nearly as I can. I don't want to put on the blinders of 'good' and 'bad', and limit my vision. If I used the term 'good' on a thing I'd lose my license to inspect it, because there might be bad in it. Don't you see? I want to be able to look at the whole thing. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Picture quotes by Nicolas Cage
#59. I like the idea of being involved in pictures that can entertain the entire family and can stimulate youngsters into looking at picture books. There's nothing wrong with that. #Quote by Nicolas Cage
Picture quotes by J.K. Rowling
#60. Harry arrived early in the Room of Requirement for the last DA meeting before the holidays and was very glad he had, because when the torches burst into flame he saw that Dobby had taken it upon himself to decorate the place for Christmas. He could tell the elf had done it, because nobody else would have strung a hundred golden baubles from the ceiling, each showing a picture of Harry's face and bearing the legend: 'HAVE A VERY HARRY CHRISTMAS! #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Picture quotes by Hermann Hesse
#61. All this seemed a decorative newly painted picture behind clear new glass. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Picture quotes by Antonio R Damasio
#62. When emotion is entirely left out of the reasoning picture, as happens in certain neurological conditions, reason turns out to be even more flawed than when emotion plays bad tricks on our decisions. #Quote by Antonio R Damasio
Picture quotes by Ricky Hatton
#63. Dad's tiny - his passport picture is a full-length shot. He looks like he just hopped off a key ring. Mum is a different matter, she's a bit of a handful to say the least. I love her more than anyone on this Earth. But she's a monster. #Quote by Ricky Hatton
Picture quotes by Tessa Dare
#64. Tranquility is the soul of our community."
Not a quarter mile's distance away, Susanna Finch sat in the lace-curtained parlor of the Queen's Ruby, a rooming house for gently bred young ladies. With her were the room house's newest prospective residents, a Mrs. Highwood and her three unmarried daughters.
"Here in Spindle Cove, young ladies enjoy a wholesome, improving atmosphere." Susanna indicated a knot of ladies clustered by the hearth, industriously engaged in needlework. "See? The picture of good health and genteel refinement."
In unison, the young ladies looked up from their work and smiled placid, demure smiles.
Excellent. She gave them an approving nod.
Ordinarily, the ladies of Spindle Cove would never waste such a beautiful afternoon stitching indoors. They would be rambling the countryside, or sea bathing in the cove, or climbing the bluffs. But on days like these, when new visitors came to the village, everyone understood some pretense at propriety was necessary. Susanna was not above a little harmless deceit when it came to saving a young woman's life.
"Will you take more tea?" she asked, accepting a fresh pot from Mrs. Nichols, the inn's aging proprietress. If Mrs. Highwood examined the young ladies too closely, she might notice that mild Gaelic obscenities occupied the center of Kate Taylor's sampler. Or that Violet Winterbottom's needle didn't even have thread. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Picture quotes by Inspiracreatiflife
#65. Always take a picture for everywhere you go; if you don't, then all you just lost was the precious memories and moments #Quote by Inspiracreatiflife
Picture quotes by Jim Brown
#66. When I'm on a picture, I have two bosses - the director and the producer. My co-star is not my boss. #Quote by Jim Brown
Picture quotes by K. Martin Beckner
#67. Why do we as humans always tend to remember the worse things about people? We may know someone for many years, know them as vibrant and healthy, yet when they fall ill and pass away, we can only picture them at their sickest, as though they were born and lived their whole lives wearing a death mask. #Quote by K. Martin Beckner
Picture quotes by Joe Meno
#68. His face almost looked the way it did when he was a teenager, when there was the subtle expression of both confidence and mischief in his darkly handsome eyes. When I think of him now, though, I don't picture his face the way it is. What I see is from a memory, from a moment when he must have been eleven or twelve years old and we were both in our backyard and it was summertime and I was drawing in a coloring book and he was there in the green grass and he didn't know I was watching him. He was crawling around on all fours; he was practicing being a lion or a tiger or more probably a leopard and he was growling to himself, stalking the shadow of a bird, and he didn't see me staring at him and I think my mother was there, looking at us from an upstairs window, watching us both and gently smiling, and what I remember most is that all of us were happy then with who we were at that moment; at that moment, all of us were quietly happy. #Quote by Joe Meno
Picture quotes by Oscar Wilde
#69. Come, I tell you. You have chattered enough about corruption. Now you shall look on it face to face! #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Picture quotes by Diane Setterfield
#70. They are more real than the books on the shelves, books that are sketched with the barest hint of a line here and there, fading in places to a ghostly nothingness. Why recall the picture now, you must be wondering. The reason I remember it so well is that it seems to be an image of the way I have lived my own life. I have closed my study door on the world and shut myself away with people of my imagination. #Quote by Diane Setterfield
Picture quotes by Martin Scorsese
#71. If Kubrick had lived to see the opening of his final film, he obviously would have been disappointed by the hostile reactions. But I'm sure that in the end he would have taken it with a grain of salt and moved on. That's the lot of all true visionaries, who don't see the use of working in the same vein as everyone else. Artists like Kubrick have minds expansive and dynamic enough to picture the world in motion, to comprehend not just where its been, but where it's going. #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Picture quotes by Susan Jeffers
#72. The term "universe" refers to that life plan that seems to take over despite what we have in mind - that "force" operating, seemingly on its own, that often interferes with our picture of how we would like things to be. It refers to a certain flow in our lives and the lives of others over which we have little or no control. #Quote by Susan Jeffers
Picture quotes by Eleanor Catton
#73. He wondered what assumptions she was forming, what picture was emerging from this scant constellation of his life. #Quote by Eleanor Catton
Picture quotes by Rachel Van Dyken
#74. When you have lost your way, when the world appears as if it is
crumbling around you, perhaps, just maybe, you should close your eyes.
By looking outward we forget the strength that is given inward. We can
only see part of the picture with our eyes open. But, when they are closed,
we see as a whole. We concentrate not on what we can see, but on the faith
of what we know to be true. - WHISPERED MUSIC #Quote by Rachel Van Dyken
Picture quotes by Alan Ladd
#75. I've always had a great respect for the picture business. It's been good to me. #Quote by Alan Ladd
Picture quotes by T. Colin Campbell
#76. If we limit our sight to individual players, we'll never see the big picture. The issue is a systemic one, maintained by interconnected actors, all acting in their self-interest to further their goals. The trouble is not, or not always, the actors themselves, or their intrinsic motivations. Instead, it's the overarching goal of the entire system that's at fault: corporate profit above public health. #Quote by T. Colin Campbell
Picture quotes by Esther Hizsa
#77. Whenever my mind is muddied by fears, longings, and unsolved problems and my body poised to fight or flee, I try to picture that jar of pond water. As I 'quiet myself' my anxieties sink and clarity emerges: there is no place that God is not, no calamity to be faced without Jesus by my side, and nothing in all creation that can separate me from God's love. #Quote by Esther Hizsa
Picture quotes by Michael Lewis
#78. The world clings to its old mental picture of the stock market because it's comforting; because it's so hard to draw a picture of what has replaced it; and because the few people able to draw it for you have no interest in doing so. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Picture quotes by Stephen Shore
#79. I don't have to have a single point of emphasis in the picture. It can be complex, because it's so detailed that the viewer can take time and read it, and look at something here, and look at something there, and they can pay attention to a lot more. #Quote by Stephen Shore
Picture quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#80. I associate my motion picture career more with being unhappy and scared, or being under the gun, than with anything pleasant. #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Picture quotes by Rod Steiger
#81. I was pleased when the picture was over I fit in all right and I spoke well enough as I said before, cause I was scared to death there for a minute. I mean, you're doing a scene with somebody like that or they're watching you or something, you'd better come up with something. #Quote by Rod Steiger
Picture quotes by Emily  Williams
#82. Sometimes there are people in this world that you meet. Most of these people remain just that, passing acquaintances that further down the line you will struggle to remember their names, let alone picture their faces and it all fades into a distant past almost like a dissolving aspirin. Some acquaintances become friends, but again these come and go with only a few remaining consistent. However, occasionally you will meet someone that changes who you are and who you will become. #Quote by Emily Williams
Picture quotes by Lisa Ko
#83. In Ridgeborough, when Deming Guo was no longer a name that was said aloud, he used to picture the Other Deming and Other Mama, still living in Queens. It was a sort of comfort, bittersweet; at least they'd remained together. #Quote by Lisa Ko
Picture quotes by Ellen Von Unwerth
#84. I love all the old pictures - of spanking and Bettie Page and corsets. But you can't do spanking in fashion, so I wanted to do a project where I could really let go and get girls who also love those things. #Quote by Ellen Von Unwerth
Picture quotes by Amy Lane
#85. Besides that, Sebastian liked books - all kinds. He loved fiction, non-fiction, big picture art books, the smell, the feel, and the potential to sit down with a book, become lost within it and only surface hours later when you needed to pee. Books were the bestest of best friends - and they never bitched if you forgot their birthdays or decided not to call them for a month. #Quote by Amy Lane
Picture quotes by John Locke
#86. The picture of a shadow is a positive thing. #Quote by John Locke
Picture quotes by Jimi Hendrix
#87. I want to play music that draws a picture of the world and its space. #Quote by Jimi Hendrix
Picture quotes by Albert Einstein
#88. If I can't picture it, I can't understand it. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Picture quotes by Joaquin Sorolla
#89. The older I become, the more I realize that drawing is the most important of all the problems of picture-making. #Quote by Joaquin Sorolla
Picture quotes by Ray McKinnon
#90. I think I'm a better collaborator, in seeing the bigger picture and trying to just help that, and not be so self-centered in whatever my task is, which is being an actor. #Quote by Ray McKinnon
Picture quotes by Robert Nathan
#91. She looked for a long time at the picture, holding it out toward the window, toward the last grey light of afternoon. "It's funny," she said at last, "how sometimes you've never seen things, and still, you know them. As though you were going to see them some time, and because you were going to see them you could remember what they looked like . . . That doesn't sound right, does it?" "I #Quote by Robert Nathan
Picture quotes by John French Sloan
#92. The subject may be of first importance to the artist when he starts a picture, but it should be of least importance in the finished product. The subject is of no aesthetic significance. #Quote by John French Sloan
Picture quotes by Paul Cezanne
#93. Under this fine rain I breathe in the innocence of the world. I feel coloured by the nuances of infinity. At this moment I am one with my picture. We are an iridescent chaos ... #Quote by Paul Cezanne
Picture quotes by Jack Nicklaus
#94. I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. #Quote by Jack Nicklaus
Picture quotes by Dan Petermeier
#95. Life's like a puzzle. Everyone is given one piece. Sometimes you connect with someone or something that has an interlocking part. As time goes by, you'll see that picture taking form, and you'll be amazed how beautiful it is. God will never tell you how many pieces it takes or how to complete the puzzle, but when you meet Him in heaven, you'll see that everything fit together perfectly. #Quote by Dan Petermeier
Picture quotes by Will Rogers
#96. You've never in your life seen a picture, I bet any one of you, never seen a picture of one of these old Pilgrims praying when they didn't have a gun right by the side of them. That was to see that he got what he was praying for. #Quote by Will Rogers
Picture quotes by Emily VanCamp
#97. You put the picture of the ideal person in your head and then someone comes along and they don't fit that ideal at all. But somehow there is something about them that is so attractive. Everyone that I have fallen for has not fit that ideal at all. #Quote by Emily VanCamp
Picture quotes by Al Pacino
#98. When I was doing 'Scarface,' I remember being in love at that time. One of the few times in my life. And I was so glad it was at that time. I would come home and she would tell me about her life that day and all her problems and I remember saying to her, look, you really got me through this picture because I would shed everything when I came home. #Quote by Al Pacino
Picture quotes by Howard E. Koch
#99. Never had there been such an opportunity for the dissemination of knowledge ... . But the obverse is also true. We can have thrust upon us a false picture of reality as distorting as the trick mirrors in a Coney Island funhouse. #Quote by Howard E. Koch
Picture quotes by Joe McNally
#100. Jay Maisel always says to bring your camera, 'cause it's tough to take a picture without it. Pursuant to the above aforementioned piece of the rule book, subset three, clause A, paragraph four would be…use the camera.
Put it to your eye. You never know. There are lots of reasons, some of them even good, to just leave it on your shoulder or in your bag. Wrong lens. Wrong light. Aaahhh, it's not that great, what am I gonna do with it anyway? I'll have to put my coffee down. I'll just delete it later, why bother? Lots of reasons not to take the dive into the eyepiece and once again try to sort out the world into an effective rectangle.
It's almost always worth it to take a look. #Quote by Joe McNally
Picture quotes by Lisa See
#101. Maybe our lives are like gigantic jigsaw puzzles. You find the right piece and suddenly the whole picture has meaning. #Quote by Lisa See
Picture quotes by Claude Debussy
#102. Collect impressions. Don't be in a hurry to write them down. Because that's something music can do better than painting: it can centralise variations of colour and light within a single picture a truth generally ignored, obvious as it is. #Quote by Claude Debussy
Picture quotes by Pablo Picasso
#103. Formerly pictures used to move towards completion in progressive stages. Each day would bring something new. A picture was a sum of additions. With me, picture is a sum of destructions. I do a picture, then I destroy it. But in the long run nothing is lost; the red that I took away from one place turns up somewhere else. #Quote by Pablo Picasso
Picture quotes by Rachel Gilson
#104. The first blessing of sexuality is the way it shows us the priority God gives to diversity, which is both highlighted in and sustained by sex difference. The second blessing of sexuality is the gift of children, a fruit of both sex difference and sexual union. And the third blessing of sexuality is that it creates the possibility of marriage as a picture of God's relationship with his people - and that picture specifically requires sex difference. #Quote by Rachel Gilson

Picture quotes by Richard Ramirez
#107. One time I told this lady to give me all her money, she said no. So I cut her and pulled her eyes out. I would do someone in and then take a camera and set the timer so I could sit them up next to me and take our picture together. #Quote by Richard Ramirez
Picture quotes by Helen Hayes
#108. Only the poet can look beyond the detail and see the whole picture. #Quote by Helen Hayes
Picture quotes by William F. Buckley Jr.
#109. Halfway through the second term of Franklin Roosevelt, the New Deal braintrusters began to worry about mounting popular concern over the national debt. In those days the size of the national debt was on everyone's mind. Indeed, Franklin Roosevelt had talked himself into office, in 1932, in part by promising to hack away at a debt which, even under the frugal Mr. Hoover, the people tended to think of as grown to menacing size. Mr. Roosevelt's wisemen worried deeply about the mounting tension ...

And then, suddenly, the academic community came to the rescue. Economists across the length and breadth of the land were electrified by a theory of debt introduced in England by John Maynard Keynes. The politicians wrung their hands in gratitude. Depicting the intoxicating political consequences of Lord Keynes's discovery, the wry cartoonist of the Washington Times Herald drew a memorable picture. In the center, sitting on a throne in front of a Maypole, was a jubilant FDR, cigarette tilted almost vertically, a grin on his face that stretched from ear to ear. Dancing about him in a circle, hands clasped together, their faces glowing with ecstasy, the braintrusters, vested in academic robes, sang the magical incantation, the great discovery of Lord Keynes: "We owe it to ourselves." With five talismanic words, the planners had disposed of the problem of deficit spending. Anyone thenceforward who worried about an increase in the national debt was just plain ignorant of the cent #Quote by William F. Buckley Jr.
Picture quotes by James Whistler
#110. The vast majority of English folk cannot and will not consider a picture as a picture, apart from any story which it may be supposed to tell. #Quote by James Whistler
Picture quotes by Jean Chatzky
#111. It doesn't help to follow every rise and fall of your portfolio. It's better to tune out the day-to-day shifts, in fact. But getting a handle on the larger picture will make you feel more secure, and that goes a long way in calming your fear. #Quote by Jean Chatzky
Picture quotes by NoViolet Bulawayo
#112. That crown on her head is very heavy, that's why she is smiling like that, smiling like she just ate a whole bunch of unripe guavas. It's heavy because it's made of gold, Godknows says.
I thought crowns were made of thorns. I saw a picture of it in the Bible, when they were killing Jesus, Sbho says. #Quote by NoViolet Bulawayo
Picture quotes by Winston Churchill
#113. There is no better exercise than to study and devour a picture, and then, without looking at it again, to attempt the next day to reproduce it. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Picture quotes by Andreas Feininger
#114. It's nothing but a matter of seeing, thinking, and interest. That's what makes a good photograph. And then rejecting anything that would be bad for the picture. The wrong light, the wrong background, time and so on. Just don't do it, not matter how beautiful the subject is. #Quote by Andreas Feininger
Picture quotes by Rick Riordan
#115. Even if we can't change the big picture, our choices can alter the details. That's how we rebel against destiny, #Quote by Rick Riordan
Picture quotes by Banksy
#116. Graffiti is one of the few tools you have if you have almost nothing. And even if you don't come up with a picture to cure world poverty you can make someone smile while they're having a piss. #Quote by Banksy
Picture quotes by Wallace D. Wattles
#117. If you desire a thing, picture it clearly and hold the picture steadily in mid until it becomes a definite thought-form. #Quote by Wallace D. Wattles
Picture quotes by Mira Jacob
#118. Weddings are about fantasies - you understand? Your job is to photograph the fantasy, not the reality. Never the reality. If I ever see another picture like that, you're fired. #Quote by Mira Jacob
Picture quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#119. Must you say things like that in public, for God's sake?"

"What do you mean?"

He lowered his voice to a hiss. "Remember yesterday at the inn? My 'pistol' is making an appearance, thanks to you."

She glanced down at his trousers, which only made them bulge more obviously. Then she lifted a mischievous gaze to his face. "Whatever will you do, now that you're in this...state?"

"Conjugate Latin," he said tersely. "Think of England. Think of anything but you and me doing--Bloody hell, there it goes again, and we're nearly to Rotten Row." He stopped short and stepped behind a bench with a high back that sat near the river.

She stood next to him, pretty as the proverbial picture, her eyes dropping to his trousers with virginal curiosity.

"Would you stop looking at me there? he growled. "You're not helping."

She laughed. "You're the one who started it by trying to seduce me with words. Serves you right if you have to suffer for it."

-Giles and Minerva #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Picture quotes by Cecelia Ahern
#120. When you drop a glass or a plate to the ground it makes a loud crashing sound. When a window shatters a table leg breaks or when a picture falls off the wall it makes a noise. But as for your heart when that breaks it s completely silent. You would think as it s so important it would make the loudest noise in the whole world or even have some ... Read Moresort of ceremonious sound like the gong of a cymbal or the ringing of a bell. But it s silent and you almost wish there was a noise to distract you from the pain. If there is a noise it s internal. It screams and no one can hear it but you. It screams so loud your ears ring and your head aches. It trashes around in your chest like a great white shark caught in the sea it roars like a mother bear whose cub has been taken. That s what it looks like and that s what it sounds like a trashing panicking trapped great big beast roaring like a prisoner to its own emotions. But that s the thing about love no one is untouchable. #Quote by Cecelia Ahern
Picture quotes by Martha N. Beck
#121. Now hold up your left palm (you may have to put down this book for a minute) and picture your Wild Child there: 2 inches tall, dressed in skins and bark, covered with scars, waiting for an opportunity to escape or subvert the Dictator's brutal control. Watch until you can see them both clearly in your mind's eye. #Quote by Martha N. Beck
Picture quotes by Anchee Min
#122. I felt tired, but I pitched the ball back at her. You want me to talk about myself, right? Let me tell you what 'self' means to me. The self, myself, the self as I see it, is composed mainly of selected memories from my history. I am not what I am doing now. I am what I have done, and the edited version of my past seems more real to me than what I am at this moment. I don't know who or what I really am. The present is fleeting and intangible. No one in China wants to talk about his past, because nobody wants to paint his face black. Our past is not a flattering picture, and no one wants to look at it for long. Yet what we were in fixed and final. It is the basis for predictions of what we will be in the future. To tell you truth, I identify with what no longer exists more than what actually is. We have lied about what we actually are, and that, unfortunately, will be your book. So would you still like me to talk about myself? #Quote by Anchee Min
Picture quotes by Epicurus
#123. The conquest of fear, especially fear of unaccountable divine beings who meddle in nature at will, means a reduction in the sum total of human pain and suffering and opens the door to the calm acceptance of a new picture of the world - a world in which nature is autonomous and where there are ideal beings who never meddle. #Quote by Epicurus
Picture quotes by M.A. George
#124. Aeron's stone-faced expression cracked, as he turned to give me a dumbfounded look.

Meeting his questioning eyes, I let out a little annoyed sigh, "I refuse to believe that you don't know the meaning of 'cojones'."

"I'm well aware of the meaning," he raised his eyebrows, fighting back a smile. "Just a little surprised at your choice of words…"

"Yeah, I can really paint a verbal picture," I responded dryly. #Quote by M.A. George
Picture quotes by Kendare Blake
#125. She clears her throat and does her best to start, laying out the technical specs of last year's party: who was there; what they were doing; why they came with this or that person. I guess she wants me to have a full and realistic picture. Some people need that, I suppose. Personally, I'm the type who likes to fill in the blanks and make it my own. It's probably better that way than it really was. #Quote by Kendare Blake
Picture quotes by Ernst Haas
#126. You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes. #Quote by Ernst Haas
Picture quotes by Roopleen
#127. Your life may not be 'picture perfect' but you have it in you to make it 'your best.' There's only one chance at life and you owe it to yourself to give it all you can. #Quote by Roopleen
Picture quotes by James Comey
#128. I come from a law enforcement family. My grandfather, William J. Comey, was a police officer. Pop Comey is one of my heroes. I have a picture of him on my wall in my office at the FBI, reminding me of the legacy I've inherited and that I must honor. #Quote by James Comey

#129. Don't look at the big picture as the only achievement. Start with set, smart goals and work up to something bigger. #Quote by Jordyn Wieber
Picture quotes by Anna Jarzab
#130. It's a bit like staring into another dimension, one that has a different set of mathematical and physical laws. For me, it also serves as reminder that that the mind of God is unknowable, that things that seem contradictory to us only appear so because we have no context for them, or aren't seeing the full picture. #Quote by Anna Jarzab
Picture quotes by Jackie Mason
#131. I've been watching politics for 35 or 40 years and you just never know. You can have one person win the Iowa caucus and then the whole picture changes ten minutes later. The same thing can happen again after New Hampshire. I have no idea what's going to happen with our country in the future. #Quote by Jackie Mason

Picture quotes by Whittaker Chambers
#133. Throughout the most trying phase of the Case, Nixon and his family, and sometimes his parents, were at our farm, encouraging me and comforting my family. My children have caught him lovingly in a nickname. To them, he is always "Nixie," the kind and the good, about whom they will tolerate no nonsense. His somewhat martial Quakerism sometimes amused and always heartened me. I have a vivid picture of him, in the blackest hour of the Hiss Case, standingby the barn and saying in his quietly savage way (he is the kindest of men): "If the American people understood the real character of Alger Hiss, they would boil him in oil. #Quote by Whittaker Chambers

Picture quotes by Edgar Degas
#136. My art, what do you want to say about it? Do you think you can explain the merits of a picture to those who do not see them? ... I can find the best and clearest words to explain my meaning, and I have spoken to the most intelligent people about art, and they have not understood; but among people who understand, words are not necessary, you say humph, he, ha and everything has been said. #Quote by Edgar Degas
Picture quotes by Cath Crowley

Picture quotes by Mac Barnett
#138. I read The Stinky Cheese Man as an adult. I missed that book when I was a kid. I grew up mostly with books bought at yard sales, picture books from the fifties to 1975, which is really a lucky thing. #Quote by Mac Barnett
Picture quotes by Paul Virilio
#139. In industrialized warfare, where the representation of events outstripped the presentation of facts, the image was starting to gain sway over the object, time over space. Soon a conflict of strategic and political interpretation would ensue, with radio and then radar completing the picture. #Quote by Paul Virilio
Picture quotes by Serena Williams
#140. I talked with Tom Hanks. I saw that movie 'Turner and Hooch' at least 50 times. It took all my guts to go up to him. I went up to him, I was like, 'Can I have a picture?' We talked acting; he wanted to know what I was doing. We talked a little tennis. I mean, he knew all about myself and my sister. #Quote by Serena Williams

Picture quotes by Tupac Shakur
#143. Can you picture my prophecy? #Quote by Tupac Shakur
Picture quotes by Hazrat Inayat Khan
#144. This is the picture of the spirit world. It is the world of the optimist. The pessimist has no share in its great glory, because he refuses to accept the possibility which is the nature of life. Thus he denies to himself all he desires, and even the possibility of achieving his desires. #Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Picture quotes by Walt Disney
#145. As the original Mary Poppins budget of five million dollars continued to grow, I never saw a sad face around the entire Studio. And this made me nervous. I knew the picture would have to gross 10 million dollars for us to break even. But still there was no negative head-shaking. No prophets of doom. Even Roy was happy. He didn't even ask me to show the unfinished picture to a banker. The horrible thought struck me - suppose the staff had finally conceded that I knew what I was doing. #Quote by Walt Disney
Picture quotes by Lisa Genova
#146. I can't fathom the day when I'll be able to figure out how to independently maneuver my way into my bra, like I used to, every day since I was thirteen. The left arm through the left loop, the left boob into the left cup. Never mind the clasp in the back. My poor injured brain gets all twisted up like some circus contortionist even trying to imagine how this procedure would work. I'm supposed to at least try every step of getting dressed on my own, but when it comes to the bra, I no longer bother. My mother just does it for me, and we don't tell the therapists.She holds up one of my white Victoria's Secret Miracle Bras. I close my eyes, shutting out the humiliating image of my mother manhandling my boobs. But even with my eyes closed, I can feel her cold fingers against my bare skin, and as I can't help but picture what she's doing, humiliation saunters right in, takes a seat, and puts its feet up. Like it does every day now. #Quote by Lisa Genova
Picture quotes by Thomas Hardy
#147. Tess's feminine hope - shall we confess it - had been so obstinately recuperative as to revive in her surreptitious visions of a domiciliary intimacy continued long enough to break down his coldness even against his judgement. Though unsophisticated in the usual sense, she was not incomplete; and it would have denoted deficiency of womanhood if she had not instinctively known what an argument lies in propinquity. Nothing else would save her, she knew, if this failed. It was wrong to hope in what was of the nature of strategy, she said to herself; yet that sort of hope she could not extinguish. His last representation had now been made, and it was, as she said, a new view. She had truly never though so far as that, and his lucid picture of possible offspring who would scorn her was one that brought deadly conviction to an honest heart which was humanitarian to its centre. Sheer experience had already taught her that, in some circumstances, there was one thing better than to lead a good life, and that was to be saved from leading any life whatever. Like all who have been previsioned by suffering, she could, in the words of M. Sully-Prudhomme, hear a penal sentence in the fiat, 'You shall be born,' particularly if addressed to potential issue or hers. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Picture quotes by Theresa Caputo
#148. When I deliver Spirit's messages, I have no filter - zero, zip, none. I picture my cranium like spaghetti in a colander. My brain's the pasta, the water is the information pouring over and through it, and then the messages come right out of the holes that are my voice, expression, and mannerisms. I should learn to watch my mouth, though. A lot of times there's no proper way to say the stuff Spirit tells me, so I just blurt it out. I was doing a restaurant venue of eighty people, and there was a girl there who lost her brother. I turned to her and said, "Your brother wants you to get rid of your boyfriend. He's no good." But get this - the boyfriend was sitting right next to her! So I announced that if I had four slashed tires at the end of the group, we'd all know who did it. The girl broke up with the guy four months later, but that's beside the point. Or is it? #Quote by Theresa Caputo

Picture quotes by James Martin
#150. At the time, I prayed to God only intermittently, and then mainly to ask for things, such as: "Please let me get an A on my next test." "Please let me do well in Little League this year." "Please let my skin clear up for the school picture." I used to envision God as the Great Problem Solver, the one who would fix everything if I just prayed hard enough, used the correct prayers, and prayed in precisely the right way. But when God couldn't fix things (which seemed more frequent than I would have liked), I would turn to St. Jude. I figured that if it was beyond the capacity of God to do something, then surely it must be a lost cause, and it was time to call on St. Jude. #Quote by James Martin

Picture quotes by Thomas Robert Malthus
#152. The view which he has given of human life has a melancholy hue,

eye or an inherent spleen of disposition. #Quote by Thomas Robert Malthus

Picture quotes by Mark Rothko

Picture quotes by Michael Muhammad Knight
#156. People say that America has no religion, but it's the opposite: America has every religion, all the old ones, and produces more new ones than anywhere else on earth. America;'s religious life is like the photo mosaic in which a thousand little images add up to one big picture, except there's no big picture, just a blob of unrelated and unrelatable images, texts, and poses, the freedom to take what you want from a religion and reject hte rest and be lonely, standing outsdie the warm shelters of temples with your own goon god that no one else can understand. #Quote by Michael Muhammad Knight

Picture quotes by Keith Stewart
#159. At this point in history, our society tends to elevate and reward the specialist ... This concentrated focus has brought some benefits ... It may also be a modern malady. Specialization, when taken too far and allowed to define who and what we are, becomes limiting. It robs us of our wholeness and our self-sufficiency. It misses the big picture and confines us to a narrow zoom. And it leaves us at the mercy of experts. #Quote by Keith Stewart

Picture quotes by Ralph Steiner
#161. These days I think the composers of music influence me more than any photographers or visual creators. I see something exciting or lovely and think to myself: 'If Papa Haydn or Wolfgang Amadeus or the red-headed Vivaldi were here with a camera, they'd snap a picture of what's in front of me.' So I take the picture for them. #Quote by Ralph Steiner

Picture quotes by Anonymous
#163. They forget that those tiny little hands in the manger, those tiny little hands embraced by Simeon, those hands were made so that nails might be driven through them. Those baby feet, not yet able to walk, they were made to walk up Golgotha to be nailed to the cross. The head of baby Jesus was made so that someday wicked men would press down a crown of thorns into it, drawing his precious blood. This baby's soft tummy would someday be violently ripped open by a spear. So many forget that the manger leads to the cross. Jesus was born to die and when we speak about that, we find rejection by so many. When we speak about why he had to die, when we speak about our sin and the wrath of God, people turn off and tune out. When you see the Messiah in the big picture of our salvation, he is a divisive figure. He divides people into two groups: unbelievers and believers. It was that way in his day and still is today. #Quote by Anonymous

Very soon I discovered that if one gets a feeling for no more than a dozen other radiation and nuclear constants, one can imagine the subatomic world almost tangibly, and manipulate the picture dimensionally and qualitatively, before calculating more precise relationships. #Quote by Stanislaw Ulam

#169. I want to give a picture of Dublin so complete that if the city suddenly disappeared from the earth it could be reconstructed out of my book. #Quote by James Joyce
Picture quotes by Anne Rice
#170. The great adventure of our lives. What does it mean to die when you can live until the end of the world? and what is 'the end of the world' except a phrase, because who knows even what is the world itself? I had now lived in two centuries, seen the illusions of one shattered by the other, been eternally young and eternally ancient, possessing no illusions, living moment to moment in a way that made me picture a silver clock ticking in a void: the painted face, the delicately carved hands looked upon by no one, looking out at no one, illuminated by a light which was not a light, like the light by which god made the world before He had made light. Ticking, ticking, ticking, the precision of the clock, in a room as vast as the universe. #Quote by Anne Rice
Picture quotes by Anthony Doerr
#171. This is not real suffering, she tells herself. this is only a matter of reprogramming her picture of the future. Of understanding that the line of descendancy is not continuous but arbitrary. #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Picture quotes by Selena Gomez
#172. I've learned that I want what I deny. I want someone who is crazy about me, who treats me like a princess. I want the picture-perfect fairy tale stuff. #Quote by Selena Gomez
Picture quotes by Elise Valmorbida
#173. I try and picture you reading this
there is a sense that as I write I try and get nearer to you, connect in my mind with you. #Quote by Elise Valmorbida
Picture quotes by Chip Heath
#174. Big-picture, hands-off leadership isn't likely to work in a change situation, because the hardest part of change - the paralyzing part - is precisely in the details. #Quote by Chip Heath
Picture quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#175. Then all of a sudden, one lovely night, Stalin reconsidered. Why? Maybe we will never know. Did he perhaps wish to save his soul? Too soon for that, it would seem. Did his sense of humor come to the fore - was it all so deadly, monotonous, so bitter-tasting? But no one would ever dare accuse Stalin of having a sense of humor! Likeliest of all, Stalin simply figured out that the whole countryside, not just 200,000 people, would soon die of famine anyway, so why go to the trouble? And instantly the whole TKP trial was called off. All those who had "confessed" were told they could repudiate their confessions (one can picture their happiness!). And instead of the whole big catch, only the small group of Kondratyev and Chayanov was hauled in and tried. 24 (In 1941, the charge against the tortured Vavilov was that the TKP had existed and he had been its head.) #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Picture quotes by Diane Ackerman
#176. Because we can't escape our ancient hunger to live close to nature, we encircle the house with lawns and gardens, install picture windows, adopt pets and Boston ferns, and scent everything that touches our lives. #Quote by Diane Ackerman
Picture quotes by Joe Arpaio
#177. The young people when I go to McDonald's, the Hispanic clerks will come by, 'Sheriff, can we have a picture?' over and over again. At least they want a picture with me. #Quote by Joe Arpaio
Picture quotes by Kiera Cass
#178. The picture of me just after I'd found out Aspen was saving up to marry me. I looked radiant, hopeful, beautiful. I looked like I was in love. And some idiot thought that love was for Prince Maxon. #Quote by Kiera Cass
Picture quotes by John James Audubon
#179. I looked long and carefully at the picture of a stag painted by Landseer - the style was good, and the brush was handled with fine effect; but he fails in copying Nature, without which the best work will be a failure. #Quote by John James Audubon
Picture quotes by James MacDonald
#180. Acting like a man means developing a non-anxious presence that sees the big picture, remains calm in a crisis, and won't cave in under pressure. Godly men respond; they don't react. #Quote by James MacDonald
Picture quotes by Lex Luthor, Batman V Superman
#181. [Looks at a picture of angels vs demons] That should be upside down. We know better now, don't we? Devils don't come from hell beneath us. No, they come from the sky. #Quote by Lex Luthor, Batman V Superman
Picture quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#182. I landed a job with Roger Corman. The job was to write the English dialogue for a Russian science fiction picture. I didn't speak any Russian. He didn't care whether I could understand what they were saying; he wanted me to make up dialogue. #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Picture quotes by Jeanine Cummins
#183. This place, our little cloud forest, even though we missed our papi, it was the most beautiful place you've ever seen. We didn't really know that then, because it was the only place we'd ever seen, except in picture in books and magazines, but now that's I've seen other place, I know. I know how beautiful it was. And we loved it anyway even before we knew. Because the trees had these enormous dark green leaves, as a big as a bed, and they would sway in the wind. And when it rain you could hear the big, fat raindrops splatting onto those giant leaves, and you could only see the sky in bright blue patches if you were walking a long way off to a friend's house or to church or something, when you passed through a clearing and all those leaves would back away and open up and the hot sunshine would beat down all yellow and gold and sticky. And there were waterfalls everywhere with big rock pools where you could take a bath and the water was always warm and it smelled like sunlight. And at night there was the sound of the tree frogs and the music of the rushing water from the falls and all the songs of the night birds, and Mami would make the most delicious chilate, and Abuela would sing to us in the old language, and Soledad and I would gather herbs and dry them and bundle them for Papi to sell in the market when he had a day off, and that's how we passed our days.'

Luca can see it. He's there, far away in the misty cloud forest, in a hut with a packed dirt floor and a c #Quote by Jeanine Cummins

#184. I don't think anyone likes to see a picture of themselves in a tabloid, besides a couple people who I'm not going to mention. I'm definitely not one of those people. #Quote by Gisele Bundchen

#185. Moonstruck ... was one of the few romantic comedies to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. #Quote by Norman Jewison
Picture quotes by Simon Pegg
#186. Ultimately, we are all products of the experiences we have and the decisions we make as children, and it remains a peculiar detail of human condition that something as precious as the future is entrusted to us when we possess so little foresight. Perhaps that's what makes hindsight so intriguing. When you're young the future is a blank canvas, but looking back you are always able to see the big picture. #Quote by Simon Pegg
Picture quotes by Ahdaf Soueif
#187. I'm taken over by this trunk. I'm practically living inside it. When I read the journals I feel as if I'm there, a hundred years ago. I'm putting together the whole picture and I know everything that happened and wasn't written down - Amal, p. 133 #Quote by Ahdaf Soueif
Picture quotes by John Michael Greer
#188. Science, at its core, is simply a method of practical logic that tests hypotheses against experience. Scientism, by contrast, is the worldview and value system that insists that the questions the scientific method can answer are the most important questions human beings can ask, and that the picture of the world yielded by science is a better approximation to reality than any other. #Quote by John Michael Greer
Picture quotes by Wu Han
#189. If you're dreaming of being a great soloist, walking on stage, receiving ovations night after night, having money thrown at you, girls chasing after you and your beautiful picture - that's wonderful. But what exactly does that have to do with the practice of music ? #Quote by Wu Han
Picture quotes by Cat Porter
#190. I didn't grow up dreaming or wishing for things, Grace. Then I saw this woman in this motherfucking picture, and I let myself dream, let myself wish. #Quote by Cat Porter
Picture quotes by Ally Condie
#191. At first, I thought it was having the picture that made it special, but it's not even that. It's looking at something without being watched, without being told how to see. That's what the picture has given us. #Quote by Ally Condie
Picture quotes by Matthew FitzSimmons
#192. Politics is an ugly picture with a pretty frame. #Quote by Matthew FitzSimmons
Picture quotes by Irving Stone
#193. I slept in van Gogh's bed. I worked in the room where he painted. I saw the place where he was cared for when he cut off his ear. I lived in the jail cell where he stayed. And I looked out the window. You remember that picture of the cornfields through the bars? That was what I saw. #Quote by Irving Stone
Picture quotes by David Levithan
#194. Then I told her what I didn't see. Namely, that I didn't see her.
You could be standing a few feet away - Clara's dance partner, or across the street taking a picture of Rudolph before he takes �ight. I could have
sat next to you on the subway, or brushed beside you as we went through the turnstiles. But whether or not you are here, you are here - because
these words are for you, and they wouldn't exist if you weren't here in some way. This notebook is a strange instrument - the player doesn't know
the music until it's being played. #Quote by David Levithan
Picture quotes by Marshall Segal
#195. Finally, on this side of heaven we are all not yet married. Every wedding day is only a small and inadequate picture of a wedding day to come, when we are given again forever to our Savior and King. #Quote by Marshall Segal
Picture quotes by Gottfried Helnwein
#196. The first time I saw a picture of Elvis - I was in a state of shock, because I couldn't believe that a human being could be so beautiful. #Quote by Gottfried Helnwein
Picture quotes by Heather Moehn
#197. Using the Worst-Case Scenario Technique

Another way to correct inaccurate expectations is to imagine what would happen if the worst possible scenario occurred. Pretend that everything has gone wrong at once. Picture all the details and then exaggerate them. As you visualize the worst situation possible, you may start to laugh. The scene will seem so ridiculous that you realize there is not the slightest chance that it will take place.

Lupe used the worst-case scenario technique after deciding that she really wanted to join the yearbook committee. The students in the group met after school once a week, and Lupe felt anxious about attending her first meeting. She was certain she would clamp up when people spoke to her. The morning before the meeting, she relaxed and imagined the worst things that could happen. She pictured herself saying something and everyone ignoring her. She pictured her face getting so red that it looked like she was going to explode. Then she imagined people laughing at her, saying she didn't belong.
This exercise helped Lupe realize that her fears were unfounded. That afternoon, after a little pep talk and a few deep breaths, Lupe walked into the meeting. She was relieved that people were genuinely happy to have her there. She felt proud that she was able to be involved in a situation that she would have previously avoided. #Quote by Heather Moehn
Picture quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#198. He saw on the paper a picture of a man, white-skinned, who hung upon a crosspiece of wood. The man was without clothes except for a bit about his loins, and to all appearences he was dead, since his head drooped upon his shoulder and his eyes were closed above his bearded lips. Wang Lung looked at the pictured man in horror and with increasing interest. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Picture quotes by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
#199. To my mind, a picture should be something pleasant, cheerful, and pretty, yes pretty! There are too many unpleasant things in life as it is without creating still more of them. #Quote by Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Picture quotes by James Whistler
#200. As light fades and the shadows deepen, all petty and exacting details vanish, everything trivial disappears, and I see things as they are in great strong masses: the buttons are lost, but the sitter remains; the sitter is lost, but the shadow remains; the shadow is lost, but the picture remains. And that, night cannot efface from the painter's imagination. #Quote by James Whistler
