Famous quotes containing the words galleries, museums, fine and/or arts:

    I have got enough of the old masters! Brown says he has “shook” them, and I think I will shake them, too. You wander through a mile of picture galleries and stare stupidly at ghastly old nightmares done in lampblack and lightning, and listen to the ecstatic encomiums of the guides, and try to get up some enthusiasm, but it won’t come.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    In museums and palaces we are alternate radicals and conservatives.
    Henry James (1843–1816)

    It is bad enough that our geniuses cannot do anything useful, but it is worse that no man is fit for society who has fine traits. He is admired at a distance, but he cannot come near without appearing a cripple.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    The great end of all human industry is the attainment of happiness. For this were arts invented, sciences cultivated, laws ordained, and societies modelled, by the most profound wisdom of patriots and legislators. Even the lonely savage, who lies exposed to the inclemency of the elements and the fury of wild beasts, forgets not, for a moment, this grand object of his being.
    David Hume (1711–1776)
