Famous quotes containing the words motion and/or picture:

    Motion or change, and identity or rest, are the first and second secrets of nature: Motion and Rest. The whole code of her laws may be written on the thumbnail, or the signet of a ring.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Stanley Kubrick (b. 1928)
