Famous quotes containing the words outline of and/or outline:

    One by one objects are defined—
    It quickens: clarity, outline of leaf

    But now the stark dignity of
    entrance—Still, the profound change
    has come upon them: rooted, they
    grip down and begin to awaken
    William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    It is the business of thought to define things, to find the boundaries; thought, indeed, is a ceaseless process of definition. It is the business of Art to give things shape. Anyone who takes no delight in the firm outline of an object, or in its essential character, has no artistic sense.... He cannot even be nourished by Art. Like Ephraim, he feeds upon the East wind, which has no boundaries.
    Vance Palmer (1885–1959)
