Famous quotes containing the words composition and/or current:

    Those Dutchmen had hardly any imagination or fantasy, but their good taste and their scientific knowledge of composition were enormous.
    Vincent Van Gogh (1853–1890)

    Absolutely speaking, Do unto others as you would that they should do unto you is by no means a golden rule, but the best of current silver. An honest man would have but little occasion for it. It is golden not to have any rule at all in such a case.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
